Campus Flemingsbergs Chamber Choir
Are you a choir singer with good music reading skills and who can carry off acappella? Do you want to sing a more challenging repertoire in more artistic contexts?
The Campus Flemingsberg Chamber Choir, (CFCC), is a collaboration between Folkuniversitetet and University College of Music Education in Stockholm (SMI), and is aimed at those studying or working on Campus Flemingsberg.
CFCC is a mixed choir consisting of experienced singers drawn from campus Flemingsberg’s various activities. Its repertoire is mainly 20th and 21st century Swedish choral music, as well as more well-known foreign music. The choir also sings recently composed works and arrangements, including mainly acappella but also instrumentals and ensembles. The vision of CFCC is to create a choir of high artistic ambition for performances at campus celebrations and special events, as well as externally and on tour.
