Night of Queen Choir

Formed as a project choir in September 2008 for the upcoming show. The singers come from Karlstad and its surroundings. Some of the singers participated in an earlier Queen tribute show a few years back, others knew each other from other choirs and for some, it was nothing but new faces.

In a short time, this wonderful collection of individuals became a homogeneous group with common goals. Since the start, four new singers have joined.

The choir arrangements are almost exclusively original backing vocals transcribed by Jonas Angerud. The material has been processed using modern technology and has been rehearsed individually as well as together.

In connection with the performances in Södertälje in April 2009, Anders Börjesson was engaged as director with the task of developing the show. Vocals teacher Gun-Britt Gustafsson has also helped to refine the choir sound.
