Meet the Choir

The Store Norske Men's Choir of Longyearbyen.

Store Norske Men’s Choir
Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway

Singers from all walks of life in this community of 2,150 at 78 degrees north.

These men dress as coal miners and sing together at a special concert in an abandoned mining building. From warm-ups to mining ballads and English hits, they celebrate the heritage of their town.

This is an Audiograph, and it’s two minutes long. Think of it as an audio documentary with a visual element or as a photograph illustrated by sound.

We love to listen, and we hope you will too. Take a moment and Meet the Choir.
