Kammerkoret Aurum is an award-winning choir based in Trondheim, Norway, which consists of around 30 singers. The choir was founded in 2006 and has its roots in the musical milieu of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. Aurum has a vast and varied repertoire concentrating on new, Scandinavian music. Their projects often arise from curiosity towards new musical expressions and they are an eager commissioner of new choral music.

Kammerkoret Aurum is an attractive partner for collaborations. The last year, Aurum has performed together with the Swedish artist Carola under Olavsfestdagene in Trondheim, sung with the Norwegian artist Sondre Justad at the Neon festival and collaborated with actress and dramatist Marianne Meløy on our CD-project “All that our mothers have fought”. Aurum often collaborates with local and national choirs for concerts and other projects.
