What's On

Ulrika Eleonora Church Choir

The Scandinavian countries are true lands of song, and Sweden is no exception. With excellent choirs and a tradition of heart-breakingly beautiful folk melodies, an evening in the company of some of its musicians will be an unforgettable experience.

Tonight we give a warm welcome to the Ulrika Eleonora Kyrkokor. This choir, based at the Swedish Church in London will sing an enticing mix of pieces by living composers interspersed with Swedish folk-songs. Afterwards. you can enjoy a taste of a real Swedish smörgåsbord.
