Christmas Oratorio

Gulbenkian Orchestra and Choir / Grete Pedersen

Event Slider

One of the most renowned and sought-after conductors specialized in choral music, Norwegian Grete Pedersen founded the Oslo Chamber Choir in 1984 and has directed choral and symphonic works with the Rundfunkchor Berlin, MDR Leipzig Radio Choir, Mahler Chamber Orchestra or Yale Camerata. One of her prize-winning albums is dedicated to the Motets of J. S. Bach, a composer on whom she will also focus on her performance at Gulbenkian Música, conducting the Choir and the Gulbenkian Orchestra in two cantatas of the Christmas Oratorio. A perfect programme for this season.
