Edvard Grieg Kor (EGK) under Chief Conductor, Edward Gardner, is Western Norway’s leading professional choir and is composed of the eight permanent singers in Edvard Grieg Vokalensemble together with 8-24 regular guest singers. In addition to EGK’s busy performing schedule, EGK is also the professional core of the opera chorus for Bergen National Opera and the symphonic choir of the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. In recent years, the Edvard Grieg Kor has achieved recognition both nationally and internationally through their performances with Bergen National Opera and Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. The choir has won prestigious Gramophone awards, including 'Recording of the year' with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, and in 2023 made their debut at the BBC proms with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
