The Danish Vocal Ensemble Dopplers, composed of 7 vocalists conducted by Astrid Vang-Pedersen, aims to innovate the traditional concert through the conscious work on performance and concert design.
Through a dedicated focus on communicative performance, conceptual concert programming, storytelling, choreographies and audience participation Dopplers create unique and magical vocal worlds.
The group sings a broad repertoire within multiple genres such as folk, world, pop and classical music eagerly experimenting with cross-over and improvisation. They compose and arrange most of their own repertoire though they also incorporate known pieces and commissioned compositions.
Dopplers was selected to perform at the World Symposium on Choral Music in 2017 and at Sing Strong A Cappella Festival in New York in 2019.
In October 2021 Dopplers released their new CD called NORD with original music and new arrangements of Nordic folk music. NORD is the groups first full-length album - a tale and soundscape of Nordic sound and seasons, representing natural elements such as water, fire, earth and air.
Astrid Vang-Pedersen is a choral conductor and concert designer.
She has developed a specific method on staging choral performance,
called Concert Design, and finished her thesis on the subject in 2018,
a project created in collaboration with The Royal Danish Academy of Music and Roskilde University.
