Raseborg Male Choir

About our choir

Raseborg Male Choir is a vibrant choir with 25 singers. We focus on musical quality and a feeling of togetherness; in other words, we want to sing really well and have fun.

We perform in a wide range of musical styles, from Jean Sibelius to David Bowie and Lady Gaga.

We try to reinvent ourselves continuously.

Our history goes back to the 1930s, and our members come from Raseborg or its neighbouring areas. We are proud to have the extremely musical Teddy Granroth as our conductor.

We are members of two choir associations: the regional Västra Nylands sång- och musikförbund (VNSMF) and the Swedish-language male choir association Finlands svenska manssångarförbund (FSM). Our chairman, Håkan Björk, is also the chairman of FSM.

Our choir conductor

Teddy Granroth graduated as a musical conductor from Pietarsaari Conservatory in 1993. He has conducted several choirs, including Jakobstads sångarbröder, Karleby manskör, Sångföreningen Cajorna and Raseborg Male Choir. He himself has sung in the male choir M.Ä.N.

Teddy was the conductor of the Svenska teatern production of the Sound of Music, and 17 plays for the Raseborg summer theatre. He has also been the conductor of local theatre productions, revues etc.

In addition, he regularly composes new music and arranges music for choirs and small ensembles. He was the composer, choir conductor, organiser and artistic director in the centennial celebration of the local choir association, VNSMF, in 1997.

Currently, Teddy sings in a group that includes figures such as Susann Sonntag. The group will perform the concert En hyllning till Ted Gärdestad – för kärlekens skull. He is also a member of show band Hemma hos Greta and works with artists like Ami Aspelund, Annika Cleo and Tomas Lund. Teddy has accompanied and arranged songs for the following foreign artists: Peter Lundblad, Patrik Isaksson and Jan Johanssen.

Teddy lives in the countryside, where he enjoys peace and quiet, chopping wood and relaxing in his sauna.

Join our choir!

Male choir singing is both fun and trendy, and creates a fantastic feeling of togetherness. We work hard together to give our listeners unique experiences through strong emotions: we make them laugh and cry and join with them to create mixed feelings of raw masculine power and romance.

If you have a good singing voice and feel like joining us – don’t hesitate, just contact our conductor Teddy Granroth: 045 787 11803 or teddygranroth@gmail.com. We are convinced it will be a decision you won’t regret – ask any of our choir members!

The Raseborg Male Choir usually gives a smaller concert in the autumn and a larger one in the spring. Our annual traditions include one May Day event and two Christmas concerts. We occasionally collaborate with other choirs. Every couple of years we also perform abroad.

The choir rehearses in Borgkila in Karis on Thursdays from 6pm to 9pm between September and May.

We have compiled an extensive sound archive, including high-quality recordings of the voice parts of our songs. They help you to rehearse your part on your own, whenever it suits you. This will make it easier to learn new songs, which is particularly important for new members.

Welcome to our jolly band of singers!
