The vocal ensemble Dopplers is comprised of 6-8 vocalists, conducted by Astrid Vang-Pedersen. The group sings a broad repertoire within multiple genres such as pop, folk, world and classical music,
and they eagerly experiment with combining these genres. Dopplers furthermore has a specific focus on communicative performance through introductions, choreographies and audience participation.
The group compose and arrange a great amount of their repertoire though they also incorporate known pieces and compositions.
Dopplers has won a gold medal at the international choir competition in Randers 2012, a second place in the category “Rhythmic choir” at Aarhus Vocal Festival 2015, along with a special prize for the most innovative choir performance, and was elected to perform at the World Symposium on Choral Music in 2017 and at Sing Strong A Cappella Festival in New York in 2019.
The group released a second EP in 2018 titled “Colors of Peace”. For this EP the group has experimented with own compositions and arrangements inspired by the sounds of world music. Together the songs make up a suite that invites the listener on a journey through the versatile sounds of the vocal medium.

Dopplers samarbejder fast med lydtekniker Frederik Rosenkjær der uddannet fra Rytmisk Musikkonservatorium i København og indehaver af "BlackBurst Lydteknik".
Et af BlackBursts flere specialer er vokalmusik, hvor der leveres lydtekniske løsninger i
absolut højeste kvalitet til både mindre og mellemstore arrangementer.
Blackburst underbygger Dopplers særegne performance med diskret forstærkning,
der samtidig bevarer oplevelsen af den autentiske stemme og det akustiske samspil sangerne imellem.
Dopplers synger på teatermikrofoner, hvilket betyder at sangerne kan udfolde sig frit både fysisk i gestik, koreografier og opstillinger. Blackburst leverer desuden stemningsættende lys til Dopplers koncerter, der underbygger ensemblets fortællinger og koncertens særlige atmosfære.
