KORUS

KÓRUS er hópur vina, hreyfiafla í tónlistar- og myndlistarsenu Reykjavíkur sem hittist vikulega í Mengi og syngur og útsetur frumsamda tónlist eftir hvert annað. KÓRUS er allt í senn, kór, hljómsveit, söfnuður, költ og býður alla velkomna í ljósvortexið. Meðal meðlima KÓRUS eru Valgeir Sigurðsson frá Bedroom Community, Borko og María Huld í Amiina, tónlistarkonan Kira Kira og tónlistarmaðurinn Pétur Ben.

  



KÓRUS is a choir collective of 30 or so friends, all active forces in the Icelandic music/art scene who meet every week to sing new music together.
 
The choir/collective/supergroup devotes itself to singing music by choir members or people with strong relations to the choir solely, so at a Kórus concert one might expect to hear new pieces by Valgeir Sigurðsson of Bedroom Community, Borko and María Huld of Amiina, a mantra or an electronic choral by Kira Kira or even a hymn by Pétur Ben who also might play shoegaze guitar in Gyða Valtýsdóttir’s arrangement of an old Greek epitaph. And there is much more where that came from.
 
KÓRUS is the resident choir of Mengi, a live space for adventures in music.
