Tampere Philharmonic Choir

The Tampere Philharmonic Choir was founded in 1990 and consists of about 90 active members under the current artistic leadership of Timo Nuoranne. The Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra is the choir's most important partner, but the choir has also appeared with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestra of the Estonian Theatre.

A cappella concerts have played an important part in the shaping and development of the choir's sound. In all, the Tampere Philharmonic Choir has given or appeared in over 80 concerts and dozens of smaller functions in Estonia as well as Finland. Except for famous choral works, the choir's repertoire also includes rarities like Belshazzar Oratorio by Georg Friedrich Haendel, Robert Schumann's Requiem (both of which were Finnish premieres), Uuno Klami's Psalmus and Einar Englund's Sixth Symphony.

The choir recorded twice with the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra: the premiƩre recording of Sibelius's Press Celebrations Music (ODE 913-2) received three awards and Einar Englund's Sixth Symphony (ODE 951-2) was selected for the Janne Award of the Finnish IFPI in 2001.
