Are you ready for this? AAVF are happy to welcome Mariagerfjord Pigekor (Mariagerfjord Girls Choir) back on the festival with their new show. Pure joy, epic soundscapes and infectious energy delivered by 25 young girls aged 13-18 from the beautiful area of Mariagerfjord in Denmark. Supported by their band and conductor Christian Fris-Ronsfeld Mariagerfjord Pigekor kicks off the opening night of Aarhus Vocal Festival 2019 with a set of powerful pop songs in lovely harmony.
Mariagerfjord Pigekor is a rhythmic elite choir with singers from all around the Municipality of Mariagerfjord; 25 girls with outstanding singing skills in the age of 12-20 years. The choir was established in 2007 and is now the leading choir of the Mariagerfjord Choir Academy – one of the leading choir schools for contemporary music in Europe.
The choir embraces and prioritizes not only the singing but also the social aspects. There is a special emphasis on supporting the development of social skills and the understanding of obligations. – Both with a unique pedagogical approach that reaches across age-groups. The vision for each girl is, through a supportive teaching method, to reach the highest level possible. Ideally, the progress will take the singer from talent to professional. Over the last couple of years, Mariagerfjord Pigekor has performed with a number of Danish top-acts like Steffen Brandt and Emmelie de Forest.
