A 50th anniversary portrait of the artistically ambitious Academy Chamber Choir of Uppsala is drawn by a variety of authors: choristers, listeners and musicologists,all familiar with choral singing and choral music.
The characteristics of the choir repertoire are extensively described by conductors, composers, Swedish and foreign soloists and instrumentalists. The choir has commissioned and delivered first performances of works by a number of Swedish composers.
It can also be noticed how economic and organizational changes in society influence the motility of choristers, the number of performances in concert halls, churches as well as other circumstances and possibly also the very choral sound.
The choir is invited to choral festivals, goes on tours in Europe and North America and hosts visiting choirs. The choir can also be heard on records.
