Depending on the project, the chamber choir I Vocalisti consists of 20 to 60 vocally and musically trained singers from Northern Germany, who come together to perform challenging sacred and secular choral music at a professional level. Since its founding in 1991, the ensemble has performed in numerous concert series and has received prizes at national and international choral competitions, including 1st Prize at the 6th German Choir Competition in 2002 and 1st Prizes at the international choral contests in Tolosa, Spain in 2004, and in Cork, Ireland in 2009. In addition, I Vocalisti has recorded numerous works for radio, television and CD productions. The ensemble performs at major festivals, including the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival and the Festival des Choeurs lauréats. Furthermore, the choir regularly expands its musical spectrum by working in crossover projects with such groups as the Klazz Brothers and the Danish world music band Afenginn. As a guest choir for master classes, I Vocalisti has worked with directors such as Volker Hempfling, Frieder Bernius and Malcolm Goldring. The ensemble is also distinguished by its work with various composers and conductors such as U?is Prauli?š, Eric Whitacre, Ola Gjeilo and Christoph Eschenbach.
