Aarhus U consists of 40 choral singers from Aarhus in the age of 15 to 26 years.
With 40 members, the choir is the largest youth choir of its kind in Denmark.
Aarhus U is characterised by singing equally classical and rhythmic music. Therefore, our concerts always contain music for all tastes. We mainly sing the repertoire by heart and always have a focus on giving the audience an experience out of the ordinary. A part of our repertoire is slightly choreographed and we try to experiment with the expectations of a ”regular” choir concert.
Since october 2017, the choir has been led by Jonas Rasmussen, who took over from the founders Carsten Seyer-Hansen and Birgitte Næslund Madsen. Jonas holds degrees in choral conducting The Royal College of Music in Stockholm and University of Cambridge in England.
