In Celebration of the Human Voice - The Essential Musical Instrument
For the past 30 years Adolf Fredrik's Girls Choir has been active as one of the most Internationally recognized children's and youth choirs throughout the world - a musical achievement that is difficult to equal. The girl's choir is a representational choir from Adolf Fredrik's Music Classes in Stockholm, Sweden's oldest specialized school, founded in 1939; a distinguished institution of music well known throughout the world. Each year approximately 10 new choral members are inducted into the girls choir, and each and every year their leader and conductor, Bo Johansson, succeeds in bringing forth musical professionalism and wondrous tones which distinguish Adolf Fredrik's Girls Choir. Adolf Fredrik's Girls Choir has won many first awards in different choir competitions, including the BBC's "Let the peoples sing". The choir has participated in several TV and radio programs, major concert and opera performances, several recordings, major official ceremonies etc. The choir is often invited to participate in International Choir Festivals and has received many top awards for some of the most prestigious choir competitions. In 2001 the choir was selected as a "Choir of the European Federation and Cultural Ambassador" (for the years 2001 - 2004), and in October 2001 the choir got the exclusive Swedish award "Choir of the Year".
