Copenhagen Girls' Choir
Sankt Annæ Pigekor
Copenhagen Girls' Choir rates among the best of its kind in Denmark and
has its home at the Sankt Annæ Gymnasium, the Copenhagen Municipal Choir School.
The Choir has a broad repertoire with special focus on new music and popular
music. Many composers of stature have felt persuaded to write for the choir,
among them Knut Nystedt, Ib Nørholm, Svend S. Schultz, Thomas Clausen, Leif
Kayser and Michael Bojesen. This music is often taken up by other girls’
choirs. The choir also performs older music by composers such as Gabriel Fauré
and Johs. Brahms.
The Copenhagen Girls' Choir is characterized by its homogenous sound, partly
resulting from the fact that the girls are of the same age, partly a result of
the careful voice-training that all the pupils of the Sankt Annæ Gymnasium go
The Copenhagen Girls' Choir consists of all the girls from grade 6 through 9
at the Sankt Annæ Gymnasium, nearly 130 girls altogether. Depending on the task
at hand, the choir usually performs with somewhere between 30 and 60 voices.
