The Tapiola Chamber Choir was founded in 1984. The independent 36-member Choir, dedicated to achieving a professional standard of excellence, soon established itself as a major representative of its generation in the Finnish music scene. The Choir´s adventurous programming, diverse repertoire and ambitious recording schedule have found recognition in the form of favourable audience response, critical acclaim and awards both in Finland and abroad.
The Choir’s clients and partners include the leading Finnish professional orchestras, conductors, music festivals, concert agencies, record companies and composers. The Choir has also performed Baroque and Classical major works with distinguished world-known conductors such as Peter Schreier, Harry Christophers, Roy Goodman and Paul Hillier.
The Choir’s present Artistic Director since 1998 is Hannu Norjanen. Hannu Norjanen graduated from the Sibelius Academy in 1997 with diplomas in the organ, choir conducting and orchestra conducting. He studied with Jorma Panula, Eri Klas and Ilya Musin, and further studied choral conducting with Eric Ericson in Stockholm.
