The Swedish Radio Choir recruits new chorus master after international search
Following an international recruitment process for the newly created position as Chorus master, the job has been offered to Marc Korovitch from France. The Swedish Radio Choir has a long history and is an important part of what is known as “the Swedish Choral Miracle”. Under their Chief Conductor, Eric Ericson, the choir rapidly grew over a 30-year period into a seminal institution in international choral music. The choir is still sought after by a large number of conductors and concert halls.
