The Adolf Fredrik Chamber Choir from Stockholm will be bringing the Swedish tradition of Lucia to Dublin in a magical way. With both darkness and light they will herald the arrival of Christmas.
Lucia is an ancient mythical figure with an abiding role as a bearer of light in the dark Swedish winters. Lucia's feast day is traditionally on December 13th and celebrations represent one of the foremost cultural traditions in Sweden, with their clear reference to life: darkness and light, cold and warmth.
The Adolf Fredrik Chamber Choir was founded in 2000 and belongs to the parish of Adolf Fredrik in Stockholm. The choir has participated in many projects and events. They have also competed in several competitions. In 2014 they won the Grand Prix at the "14th international Choir Competition" in Tallinn in Estonia.
