History

The Savonlinna Choir was founded in 1969 for the purposes of the Savonlinna Opera Festival. Some of our members still sing in the present professional Opera Festival Choir.

For several years now the Savonlinna Choir has been connected to the local open college Linnala. Wider appreciation among internationally famous choirs has been received at national pageants in Tampere with one golden and two silver labels.

In 1995 composer Kyösti Haatanen dedicated his Christmas Oratory ”De nativitate Christi secundum Lucam” to the Savonlinna Choir. It has been performed on several occasions both at home and abroad with considerable success.

Visiting directors have included some of the highest ranking Finnish choir leaders. In addition to the Orchestra of the Savonlinna Musical Society the choir has performed with several other Finnish orchestras as well as the Tallinn Baroque Orchestra and the Latvian Junior Symphony Orchestra. The Savonlinna Choir has also visited Germany, Sweden and Estonia.
