Uppsala katedralsångare is Uppsala Cathedral’s youngest and smallest choir. It was formed in 2008 and consists of 16 to 18 members, depending on the repertoire performed. All have long experience from Uppsala’s rich choral life. The ambition of the choir is to take on and interpret music that is not often performed. The repertoire ranges from the oldest music to new compositions, often directly dedicated to the choir.
