In recent years, Edvard Grieg Vokalensemble has achieved recognition both nationally and internationally through their performances with Bergen National Opera and Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. The choir has won prestigious Gramophone awards, including 'Recording of the year' with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, and in 2023 made their debut at the BBC proms in the Royal Albert Hall, London. EGV has had a large catalogue of new works and arrangements composed especially for them by leading composers including Marianne Reidarsdatter Eriksen, Torstein Aagaard-Nilsen, Kim André Arnesen, Jonathan Rathbone, Roderick Williams and David Lang.  EGV collaborates regularly with other leading ensembles including Voces8, Barokkanerne, Manchester Camerata and Barokksolistene and has achieved critical acclaim for its recording on Chandos, 'Edvard Grieg Kor sings Grieg' .
