In English

Kotkan Kantaattikuoro is a choir which performs together with professional orchestras and soloists . We have, for example , St John and St Matthew Passions by Bach, Mozart’s Requiem, Messiah by Handel and Gloria by Poulenc in our repertoire.

We also perform lighter music, such as Finnish folk songs and a cappella songs for a choir.

Our choir conductor since 2014 has been diploma pianist, cantor Pekka Soranummi (born 1974). He graduated as Master of Music from the church music department of Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, 1998, and from the soloist department of piano music in 2004.

Our choir was founded in 1963 and currently has about 60 members. We have also performed abroad during the past years, most recently in Germany and Russia.
