About Bodø Domkor
Bodø Domkor was founded on October 7, 1954, and has since then performed choral music in different genres. The choir is a central part of an extensive church song and music environment in Bodø Cathedral, an environment that has become known both regionally and nationally.
Our ambition is to contribute with choir and orchestral works as part of the diverse cultural events we have in Bodø, and to enrich and touch the audience with choral singing at a high artistic level.
We have done - and do - both large and small projects in several different genres and we sing varied music from major church music works, such as Handel's Messiah and Bach's Christmas Oratorio, to the annual night jazz concerts which have become a solid pre Christmas tradition in Bodø. Her we invite some of the country's foremost jazz musicians to write new music for choir in collaboration with themselves.
The choir mainly holds concerts and services in Bodø Cathedral, but we also tour in our own diocese and abroad.
We are often initiators of exciting projects together with various actors, and we regularly collaborate with Arctic Philharmonic and other professional musicians and ensembles.
Artistic director of Bodø Domkor is Gro Bergrabb.
