Norwegian conductor Grete Pedersen is regarded as a pioneer in the revival of Norwegian folk music in choral arrangements, which he regularly performs alongside selected world music repertoire. For twenty years, he led the Oslo Chamber Choir, and in 1990 he succeeded the celebrated Knut Nystedt as the conductor of the Norwegian Soloists Choir, with whom he continues to achieve notable success today. Grete Pedersen graduated from the class of Kenneth Kiesler at the Norwegian Academy of Music, where he himself currently teaches, as well as pursuing additional studies with Eric Ericson and Terje Kvam. He performs with ensembles such as the Berlin Radio Choir, the Netherlands Chamber Choir, the Swedish Radio Choir, the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir, the Danish Vocal Ensemble, the World Youth Choir, etc., and he debuted with the Slovenian Philharmonic Choir in March 2016.
