Con Anima

  • Artist

Con Anima Chamber Choir has been performing in Aberdeen and Northeast Scotland for just over 20 years. 

Its repertoire spans sacred and secular music from six centuries, including well-loved classics such as Händel’s Messiah, Mozart’s Requiem, Bach’s Magnificat, and Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem. The choir also enjoys performing choral music by contemporary European and American composers and has given world premières of many new works, particularly by composers associated with The University of Aberdeen Music Department.  

In 2019 Con Anima took part in the world premiere of The Big Picture by Judith Weir (Master of the Queen’s Music), commissioned for the re-opening of The Aberdeen Art Gallery. 

Like many other choirs, Con Anima was silent for nearly 2 years, between January 2020 and October 2021, but is now delighted to be presenting concerts again.  

Con Anima is a “self-managing” group of singers who enjoy working with different guest conductors for different projects, and is delighted to be working with James Weeks for the first time in this soundfestival collaboration.
