Collegium Vocale Seoul (conducted by Sun-Ah Kim) was founded in 2007. It is one of the choirs in Korea consisting of members who are professional conductors, singers, and voice/choral conducting major students. This ensemble is acclaimed for their “breath-taking and aesthetic performances of the sacred choral music from the Renaissance to Romantic era” and “polished, well-blended sound with skills of clear diction transmission”.

After several performances since 2008, Collegium Vocale Seoul finally started to have regular independent concerts. Along with their awards at several International Choir Competitions and successful regular concerts, CVS became known as one of the sacred choral music specialists and outstanding ensembles in Korea.
In April 2014, Frieder Bernius estimated their potential after his choral seminar in Seoul, “As far as a choir has self-motivated joy and musical curiosity toward music, they will definitely grow more and more. I am sure this choir will continue to develop given their great passion for singing. ”
Between 2014 and 2015, they performed J.S. Bach’s St. John Passion, Handel’s Messiah. They also performed J.S. Bach’s cantatas working with legendary baroque oboist, Alfredo Bernardini.
In 2016, they performed Bach’s B-Minor Mass at the Seoul Arts Center, and St. Matthew Passion collaborated with world-renown Bach specialist, Masaaki Suzuki (Yale University, Director of Bach Collegium Japan) in both Japan and Korea.
