Flemingos: Flemingsberg’s campus choir

Would you like to sing in a choir? There is now a choir for anyone who studies or works on Campus Flemingsberg, and it is led by choirmasters from University College of Music Education in Stockholm (SMI)

Flemingsberg’s campus choir, Flemingos, is a collaboration between Folkuniversitetet and SMI, and is aimed primarily at people who work or study at college or university on Campus Flemingsberg.

The choir will explore different genres and songs. You don’t need to have sung in a choir before, but you should enjoy music and be interested in learning more about what it’s like to sing in a choir.

Första träffen är den tisdag 5/4 i SMI:s lokaler i Flemingsberg och vi kommer träffas 8 gånger med uppehåll den 12/4 för påsklov.

Get to know the conductors

My name is Jesper Blomberg and I was born and raised outside Gothenburg. I was educated at Ljungskile High School and Balettakademin’s music school in Gothenburg. Since graduating in 2013, I have worked as a musical artist and have participated in several major productions across Sweden and Denmark. My choir background is primarily gospel and soul, as well as classical and ensemble choral musicals. I am currently in the first year of my Music Education degree at SMI and am enjoying campus life very much.

My name is Nicolai Rese and I am 25 years old. I come from Nesodden in Norway. I sing and I play a number of wind instruments. I have sung in the school choir in Norway since I was six and have always been really interested in music. After high school, I played in the military orchestra for a year before starting my vocal training which is still ongoing. I have some experience in conducting and leading orchestras and ensembles with instrumentalists. I am used to working with expressions in music and am looking for more experience in choral music.
My name is Martin Lissel and I am a baritone and composer. I was educated at the Stockholm University of the Arts and Hamburg University of Music and Theatre. I have performed on stages such as the Royal Swedish Opera, the Wermland Opera and the Norrland Opera and have sung with orchestras such as the Swedish Chamber Orchestra and the Hamburger Symphony Orchestra. Choral singing is close to my heart and I started singing in the Risbergska Vokalensemble during my high school years which enjoyed many successes, including competitions in Switzerland and Poland.

We are very much looking forward to getting started and hope that you would like to join us!
