Welcome to Chamber Choir Moderato Cantabile


Moderato Cantabile is a Groningen Chamber Choir of 30 experienced singers, all with broad experience in choral music.
The choir was founded in 2001 by conductor Nana Tchikhinashvili.


Double concert Dorpskerk Haren, November 6, 2022


On Sunday, November 6, at 3 p.m., Moderato Cantabile will perform together with the Byzantine Men’s Choir Friesland in the Dorpskerk in Haren. The Byzantine Men’s Choir from Drachten sings a capella and aims to give publicity to Eastern Orthodox church music. It also performs folk songs from Eastern European contreien. Both choirs are led by conductor Nana Tchikhinashvili.

The versatile program includes classical and modern works, see here the programm booklet (in Dutch). The guiding principal is music with a special and sometimes mystical sound, moving the listener to other times and places. The pieces performed by the choirs are varied: a German motet, the sacred Stabat Mater, songs from the Eastern Orthodox Church, folk songs from Georgia and Ukraine, a surprising translation of Bach and other pieces.

Tickets at 12 euros are available at moderatocantabile@gmail.com and at the church entrance.
