In the main choir sings totally 19 girls of age 13-20. There isalso a junior group of 19 girls of age 7-12, in which new singers are educated for the main choir. Though choir performs mainly in the home city, it cherishes international spirit while performing a multilingual program e.g. in English, Swedish, German, Latin, Italy, Estonian and African dialect. Every second year it travels abroad and participates in special choir festivals to gain new experiences and dimensions in singing. Thus, it has performed in several European countries including Belgium (twice), Estonia (three times), Ireland, Denmark, Czech Republic, Spain, Germany and Hungary. Choir’s versatile program ranges from medieval church music to traditional women’s choir repertoires, folk music from different cultures and to more experimental music types, such as pop and rock music arranged for the choir. Choir sings both a cappella and accompanied with different instruments. It has also performed in 2016 as an opera choir in Hänsel und Gretel composed by Engelbert Humperdinc.
Since 1999’s, Mr Ahti Sepp has acted as the choir conductor for Nuorisokuoro Oulun Fröökynät. He conducts both groups of the choir - the main choir as well as the group of little girls - while groups are rehearsing and singing separately or together. Thus, he is able to prepare younger girls to change over in the main choir in the age of 13-14. During his leadership’s the qualitative level of the choir as well as the variety of the program have improved remarkably. Mr Sepp urges to provide the choir versatile and international program without fearing challenges. Mr Sepp has acted as a music teacher in Estonia and Finland as well as conducted several choirs in both countries. In Finland, he has conducted not only girls’ choir but as well for example a male-voice choir and chamber choir.Back to the list of ensembles
