Qatar Concert Choir Katara Amphitheatre

Starting life in 2011 as a small ad hoc ensemble of a dozen or so Baroque enthusiasts, today’s incarnation of the Qatar Concert Choir numbers more than 50 rigorously auditioned singers from more than 30 countries. The choir has developed and thrived under the baton of Artistic Director Giovanni Pasini since 2014. Today, Qatar Concert Choir is the country’s leading adult choral ensemble.

Regularly collaborating with the QPO, the QCC maintains a busy performance schedule, featuring works by composers such as Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, Mozart, Beethoven, Holst and Whitacre in its programs. The choir’s repertoire ranges from baroque to pop, musicals to videogame soundtracks, and from opera to Arabic songs. We celebrate life in Qatar through the regular performance of traditional and contemporary Arabic music, seeking to link this region’s singing culture with the broader international choral community. We have collaborated with international artists including Dana Al Fardan, Felicitas Fuchs, Gianluigi Gelmetti, Stefanie Iranyi and Clint van der Linde.

In 2018, Qatar Concert Choir was invited to Malaga, Spain to perform Beethoven’s Symphony No 9. Six years later, in celebration of its 200th anniversary, QCC united with QPO and brought Doha its largest ever multinational choir, performing Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9. It was a joyous experience for audience and singers alike as we joined forces with guest singers to perform as a group of more than 100 Qatar-based choristers.

QCC’s “Vivaldi’s Winter in Qatar” (available on YouTube, Spotify and Apple Music) was the first ever classical choral music video entirely recorded, filmed, and edited in the Gulf region.
