Edvard Grieg Vokalensemble
Paul Robinson – musical director
Edvard Grieg Vocal Ensemble was founded and based in Bergen, as a residence a cappella ensemble at Edvard Grieg’s home, Troldhaugen. The ensemble’s repertoire spans across genres, and the singers are often heard together with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and as a core in the choir at Bergen National Opera’s productions. Since the beginning, the vocal ensemble has had regular performances during the Bergen Festival and Bergen kirkeautunnale.
