DO YOU WANT TO SING IN ONE OF THE BEST FEMALE CHOIRS IN THE WORLD?
COME TO KYN’S AUDITIONS!
Female choir KYN
Artistic director Kaija Viitasalo
KYN is one of the leading female choirs in Finland and in the world. KYN’s merit list in the year 2017 includes a Grand Prix -win and a special prize for outstanding stage performance in Berlin, placing #6 in the world ranking of female choirs and the title of the Choir of the year.
KYN has been commended for its original repertoire of ethnic jazz, expressiveness and uniform, yet vivid sound resembling that of a vocal group. With its music, the choir moves the listener on an emotional level and tells a story – even across linguistic and cultural borders.
Singers in KYN are women of different ages and areas of work or study who share a passion for choir music. We take a professional attitude towards our hobby and for us singing in a choir is a way of life. If you think and feel the same, you might be a future KYN-singer, “kynnitär”!
