Cantorums Manskor – Sweden
Conductor: Bo Glembring
Cantorums Manskor (The Cantorum Male Voice Choir) started in 1956 in Gothenburg, Sweden as the choir of the Song- and Music Society Cantorum. Over the years both the choir and the repertoire has expanded. Today there are over 50 members representing one of the most active male voice choirs in the western part of Sweden.
Every year the choir arranges a spring concert in the concert hall of the “Academy of music and drama” at the University of Gothenburg and in December a Christmas concert in one of the larger churches with, on both occasions, invited soloists often from the Opera house of Gothenburg. Additionally to these concerts the choir makes other performances during the season, sacred and profane.
The choir has made several travels to abroad countries such as Finland, Denmark, Norway, Germany, Holland, Estonia, Hungary, Italy, Great Britain, Poland some as a choir exchange, some on invitations to song- & music festivals. The intention is to keep up with this tradition to get the opportunity
of meeting other fellow singers and make contacts over the borders.
Since 1993 Mr Bo Glembring is the conductor of the choir. He is a man in his best ages and has always devoted his free time to song and music. Starting as a member of the Cathedrals boys’ choir he has ended up as a fine tenor soloist and pianist. In addition to this he is also conducting the Police male voice choir of Gothenburg and is the associate conductor of a large mixed choir named Lodola as well.
