Vocal Art Ensemble of Sweden

Vocal Art Ensemble of Sweden (former Pro Musica Chamber Choir) has for decades been a powerful voice in the Swedish and international choir community, not least appreciated for its commitment to contemporary music. The choir has with its conductor Jan Yngwe toured the better part of Europe, as well as Japan (1989), Cuba (1995), South Africa (1999) and Brazil (2004), in all some thirty international concert tours.

Through the years Vocal Art Ensemble has been awarded several prizes in international choir competitions. With its many recordings and radio and TV appearances the ensemble has been lauded both domestically and internationally, for instance for its interpretations of choir music written by Russian composer Alfred Schnittke and Frank Martin from Switzerland.

The choir has also been engaged on a regular basis for concerts, opera performances and recordings (Deutsche Grammophon) with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and the Göteborg Opera.

The musical collaboration of Vocal Art Ensemble and Jan Yngwe is based on the conviction of the power and necessity of music in an increasingly technocratic society, a belief in music as an opportunity and a tool to reach a multidimensional and deeper understanding of our existence and of life. For its devoted commitment to the central issues of our time the choir has been acknowledged in both the Swedish Radio (”Veckans artist” in P2) and Swedish Television (”Veckans konsert” in svt 2).
