KORET (The Choire) exists under the parole ”Ambition above Ability”, and has been a movement since 2008 as a result of post-filmschool restlessness and a need for a free-space in a achievefocused society. The community is continuously expanding and now counts 50 + Osloers in their thirties, who meets in a mystical sanctuary once a week to praise the beauty and healing powers of musical masterpieces.
The profit of our pursuit is shared in various contexts, and often include unorthodox arrangements and strange surroundings.
KORET is a non-profit organisation and is lead by Ingebjør Westgaard (conductor) and Itonje Søimer Guttormsen (artistic leader).
