About Us

Oslo Global Choir (OGC) reflects the spirit of the city of Oslo- the capital of Norway, which is vibrant; diverse; dynamic and, today, a truly global city with just no looking back. Founded in 2013  and originally known as Cafeteatret World Choir by artistic directors Nina Vestby and Ombeline Chardes; today OGC has become a choir committed to creating good music and a lasting impression with our audiences. OGC presents an eclectic repertoire at lively concerts with musical genres including pop, rock, chanson française, Norsk, Samisk, and world music.

OGC is an established amateur choir providing opportunities ranging from personal vocal training (open-to-all to artistic growth) to forming spin-off musical groups for talented musicians. OGC also collaborates with talented and accomplished musicians from Norway and around the world to create musical; educational and adventurous experiences for our members and audiences. Membership of the choir is open to those who are committed to learning how to sing; regardless of experience (beginners, amateurs and (semi-)professional musicians are welcome), and is based on an initiation and joining process.

Born on 10th October 1983 in Paris; she was very young when she joined the Conservatoire de Paris XV classroom musical garden and began to learn music theory at the age of 6. When she turned 8; she started the violin with Catherine Prada and continued at the Conservatoire de Paris XII with Jean-Pierre Sabouret.

She graduated in the class of Arielle Gill and had her DEM of violin. At 19; Ombeline decided to expand her musical horizons. While studying Musicology mention Didactic at La Sorbonne, she joined the Jazz orchestra of Laurent Cugny and the Jazz department of the Ecole Nationale de Musique de Cachan in violin and writing / orchestration / arrangement. For the purposes of the bachelor degree in Musicology, she started to learn the piano and sing at the conservatory. A year later, Ombeline joined a writing class and studied composition, orchestration / arrangement and the Renaissance counterpoint.
