Our Current Repertoire

Our repertoire consists primarily of Swedish music, such as dance tunes, folk music, and traditional songs. We also sing show tunes, religious songs, patriotic numbers and a variety of others - some are in English and some are in Swedish. We are always working on new songs, so this list will never be complete, but it contains most of our music.
