HELSINKI PHILHARMONIC CHOIR

The Helsinki Philharmonic Choir (in Finnish: Helsingin filharmoninen kuoro, HFK) was founded in 2007 and has established itself as one of Finland's leading mixed choirs. It has built up a reputation for its challenging repertoire and its expressive and metallic sound.


In recent years the repertoire included amongst others the requiems by Verdi, Mozart and Brahms, Klami's Psalmus and Orff's Carmina Burana. The choir has also performed in opera and operetta productions like Puccini's Turandot (2020, 2023), Lehár's Giuditta (2019), Verdi's Don Carlos (2018) or Bernstein's Candide (2018, 2022). In the fall of 2023 HFK was a guest artist in the Finnish National Opera and Ballet's production Messa da Requiem.

HIRE OUR SINGERS
We are performing in different compositions from quartet to the full choir. Our repertoire includes both pop and classical pieces.

Suuri sekakuoro oli valmistautunut suureen tehtäväänsä hyvin huolellisesti. Se on kurinalainen, yhtenäiseksi hiottu laulajisto, jonka soinnikkaat ääniryhmät ovat hyvässä tasapainossa keskenään ja erottuvat omiksi selkeiksi linjoikseen lämpimässä ja valoisassa, puhtaassa yhteissoinnissa.

Kuoron rytmikäs fugaalinen iskevyys teki Händel-henkisistä nousuista esityksen juhlavia ja fantastisia huippuhetkiä.
