WHAT IS GOSSKÖREN?
Gosskören is a happiness-maximizing organization that uses choral singing as a shining sword in the fight for the perfect event. We sing pop, rock and soul songs from the 60s onwards, interspersed with comic interludes. The songs are energetic, our performances are full of antics and humor but also leave room for fine-tuned ballads. With Gosskören on stage, you can count on a lot of audience interaction and audience flirtations.
We are an experienced entertainment group, evolved over generations. Since the start in 1996, we have developed our showmanship and our overall product. Today, we perform an average of about 50 gigs in a pandemic-free year, both for Swedish and international audiences, within and outside Sweden’s borders.
BIOLOGICAL SOUND SYSTEM
Mikrofoner och en ljudtekniker är till stor hjälp och värt att hyra in om publiken är månghövdad och rummet stort. Vi klarar av att hitta på lösningar för i stort sett alla situationer även utan ljudförstärkning, men det blir oundvikligen så att vissa gäster stundtals kommer att höra oss bättre än andra. Gosskören har även en egen portabel ljudlösning som varken kräver ljudtekniker eller soundcheck i förväg och som passar för uppemot 150 gäster – tillgänglig som tillval.
We design our show to fit and be unique to your event. We are seasoned veterans who can find out where we should stand and walk to be heard and seen best. And we can handle almost any imaginable change, disaster or mishap that can befall an event.
What can a performance look like?
In a typical performance we do, Gosskören enters the stage and takes over the venue after a short presentation by the toastmaster. With a lot of energy and using both the room and the audience, we sing 4 – 5 songs interspersed with humorous and atmospheric interludes. This usually takes about 20 – 30 minutes, all based on your wishes.
An alternative to a larger solo performance is to add a teaser before dinner, where the Gosskoren enters among the mingling guests, introduces itself and sings 1-2 brisk songs to start the party and build anticipation for the evening. At more solemn ceremonies, the choir may stand ready to sing a fanfare or perhaps perform a more classical choral arrangement. Recently, we have also been the headline act in several online events, where we stream live to the guests on any platform with professional sound and high-definition video. The choir does its utmost to cross the distance to the guests and create intimacy, with fun and antics adapted for the medium. Second only to kittens, we are the best mood booster even at digital gatherings.
