Nordic Voices is a six-voice a cappella ensemble acclaimed for the depth of its programming and extraordinary vocal skills. A technically brilliant ensemble, Nordic Voices made a quick sensation in international vocal circles and is now acknowledged as a leader of the a cappella artform. Now expanding into collaborations, they perform a repertoire ranging from the medieval to the contemporary. Nordic Voices is unrivaled in the fine art of sophisticated music-making and stylish performance, and as a result have been hailed by international critics for their live appearances and remarkable recordings. The group explores new vocal techniques and new ways of using the classically trained voice. They can produce a wide range of techniques, from ordinary classical sounds to Mongolian overtone singing. Based in Oslo, Norway, the members of Nordic Voices were educated at the State Academy of Music in Oslo and the National Academy of Operatic Art in Oslo, where they specialized in opera, composition, church music and pedagogy.
“Such mesmerizing talent is rare.... Whatever language, it was the group's astonishing range of sonic vocabulary... that thrilled the senses and sent an emotional message no listener could miss.”Washington Post
