For more than 90 years, the Swedish Radio Choir has contributed to the development of the Swedish a cappella tradition. The choir members’ ability to seamlessly alternate between powerful solo performances and complete integration into the ensemble makes it a dynamic instrument praised by critics, music lovers and conductors across the world. The choir had its first concert in May 1925. Under the direction of Eric Ericson, the choir earned great international renown, leading to international tours and lasting collaborations with orchestras such as the Berliner Philharmoniker. In 2020, Kaspars Putniņš took up the position as the choir’s chief conductor, the tenth since the formation of the ensemble. Tõnu Kaljuste and Peter Dijkstra, two of his predecessors, were appointed conductors laureate in 2019.
