Choirs in the collection

Guided tours with choral singing

24.9 2017 – 8.10 2017


Tour the art to the dulcet tones of singing! Three choirs will accompany our guided tours of the modern and contemporary art collection.

Art educator Ulrika Wedin will talk about the works, and the respective choirs will sing on three different dates. The guided tours are modified to harmonise with the repertoire of the choirs.
