During mid-autumn 2011 the choir participated in a production of W.A. Mozart’s Requiem, as did Uppsala Cathedral Choir, Svenska Barockorkestern and the experienced soloists Karin Dahlberg (formerly Roman), Ivonne Fuchs, Rickard Söderberg and Markus Schwartz. Milke Falck brought everything together perfectly as the conductor.
Himmelskönig, sei willkommen (BWV 182) by Bach and Vivaldi’s Gloria were performed together as part of Schola Cantorum’s Baroque concert. The concert was performed in collaboration with experienced solo singers with connections to the cathedral choirs: Eva Ericsson Berglund (soprano), Carolina Bengtsdotter-Ljung (alto), Alexander Vesterberg (tenor) and Patrik Sandin (bass). All was accompanied by Svenska Barockorkestern, which added historical accuracy to the event by using Baroque instruments.
