Olavskoret, the Choir of the Norwegian Church in London, was established in 2012 to enhance the regular worship at the church. Around 16 regular members meet two or three times a month to rehearse a repertoire of SATB anthems, carols and national songs depending on the season. Over the years, the choir has attracted keen amateur, professional and semi-professional singers who are either Norwegian or have a strong interest in Norway.
Olavskoret aims to sing for one service a month at the Norwegian Church and has also performed in Westminster Abbey, St Martin-in-the-Fields Church and with Sissel Kyrkjebø for the ‘baptism’ of MS Viking Sea. The choir is delighted, once again, to be invited to sing in Southwark Park for the 17th May celebrations!
Sletta is a Norwegian vocalist and songwriter based in London. Drawing inspiration from her native country and London, Sletta merges peaceful, majestic sounds with a more modern and cultural sensibility into neo-soul and contemporary jazz compositions.
On the 17th of May she will be bringing her band to play some unreleased tunes for her upcoming project as well as some soulfull covers.
