Olga Vocal Ensemble

February 19 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Olga Vocal Ensemble creates musical joy. A joy that she wants to share with the world. These five young men stand ready to conquer every heart with their powerful, clear voices and overwhelming presentation.

Olga is a young a cappella singing group that approaches old traditions in a fresh way. She combines enthusiasm, humor, and drama with genuine vocal clarity to enrapture both young and old. Her repertoire covers more than five centuries of musical joy, and the ensemble is already known for her unique programs, in which moving classical music comes together with popular repertoire — from Medieval Icelandic drinking songs to nostalgic hits from your grandpa’s day. The characteristic sound of Olga blends all music into a compelling whole.

Olga Vocal Ensemble was founded in 2012 at the Utrecht Conservatory in the Netherlands. With Dutch, Icelandic, and Russian singers, as well as music from many nationalities and genres, she is a truly international ensemble. She has already had countless successful concerts both in and out of the Netherlands. Tours to wild and craggy Iceland have been a regular fixture since the very beginning. After offering an invitation on Icelandic national television, she once had 13 Olga’s together in one concert hall. In addition to this, the Olga boys recorded their first CD in 2014, received coaching with Paul Phoenix, formerly of the King’s Singers, and adopted a red kettle as Olga’s mascot.
