When Adolf Fredrik’s Girls’ Choir approaches a piece of music, the results often sound remarkably simple – irrespective of whether it is a folk song, a funny rhyme or a piece of classical music. In fact, however, the results are anything but simple. Do not be deceived by the ages of the girls. After just six or so months of acclimatization to the very special choral tradition Adolf Fredrik’s Girls’ Choir represents, they have achieved a virtually professional level. Their choral director, Bo Johansson, ensures this, with his receptive personality, his experience and his wonderful sense of humour. And so year after year, the choir sounds amazing – of course it’s about their vocal concentration, with its typically Scandinavian slim lines. But in addition, there is their fresh, clear, quite crisp sound, the special sound of this particular girls’ choir. Their work is also characterized by deep humility in relation to both the music and their joint efforts. One of the choristers put it this way: “It is a rare privilege to have the opportunity to stand amidst a group of skilful people who are all doing the thing they would choose above all others to do – and to be one of the group yourself. If you have ever had a similar experience, you will know how difficult it is to put it into words. But it’s wonderful, yes, wonderful, that’s what it is!”

Bo Johansson, founder and conductor of Adolf Fredrik’s Girls’ Choir, is very activevly concerned with international co-operation on music for childrens choirs. His interest in pedagogy has created pedagogic material for music teaching, a music dictionary for children and several choir collections. Bo Johansson is a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music.
