Welcome to Chamber Choir Moderato Cantabile

Moderato Cantabile is a Groningen Chamber Choir with an average of 28 singers, all with broad experience in choral music. The choir was founded in 2001 by conductor Nana Tchikhinashvili.


Moderato Cantabile started a particularly varied and audience-friendly concert program called Vocal Jewels in May 2019, in which the audience will be carried along on choral sounds from different parts of the world and style periods, including some compositions by conductor / singer / composer Nana Tchikhinashvili herself. You may recognize some works such as "Song for Athens" by John Tavener, which was sung during the funeral ceremony of Lady Diana, "Miserere mei, Deus" by Gregorio Allegri and "O Nata Lux" by Morten Lauridsen, but also relatively unknown, yet hauntingly beautiful choral works will be performed. All works are sung a cappella.

Vocal Jewels is performed until June 2020 at different locations, for example in the Hermitage/Amsterdam, with the occasional variation within the repertoire to honor the name! See here the 'Agenda'

Sunday afternoon, June 30, the choir gave a public rehearsal to conclude the season in the church of Garnwerd, and as a prelude to the choir trip to Vienna from October 19 through October 24. Soloist performances by members of the choir could also be heard.

There is still room for a 1st alto! You can sign up here
