Ragnar Bohlin, conductor
Comprised of 32 professional singers, the Swedish Radio Choir returns after a stunning Verdi Requiem with the Swedish Radio Orchestra in 2001. Recognized as one of the world’s leading a cappella choirs performing the full spectrum of choral repertoire, the group began some 80 years and has served under the leadership of the famed choral conductor Eric Ericson and Tõnu Kaljuste, among others. This tour is led by conductor Ragnar Bohlin, a Stockholm native who also serves as choral director for the San Francisco Symphony.
