We are Vocal group SONO
SONO is a rhythmic a cappella ensemble from Aarhus consisting of 24 singers aged 23-47.
In our repertoire you will find interpretations of songs by different pop, rock and R&B artists. Among them are Major Lazor, MØ, Turboweekend and Julie Maria. SONO's vocal arrangements are created by external vocal arrangers as well as by conductor Tine Ohrt Højgaard or by members of SONO.
Over time SONO has created a unique energetic expression that we continuously develop and refine. We have had many memorable concerts at home in Denmark as well as abroad. We have performed on stages such as churches, culture houses, cafés, and concert venues.

Photos and video

We had an amazing weekend with singing, dancing and partying. On the weekend 19-20th of november we celebrated our 25th anniversary as a vocal group. Joined by old members from the last 25 years we practiced all through Saturday to perform a two-hour concert at DOKK1 in front of a sold-out Store Sal housing more than 250 people. The Danish singer-songwriter Julie Maria joined us on two songs and performed two of her own compositions as well. Saturday's hard work paid off as several former members of the vocal group joined us on-stage and performed the songs Cry me a river and Thank you, the latter conducted by the former leader, Jim Daus Hjernøe.
We want to thank everyone involved in making this weekend everthing we could hope for in celebrating our 25th anniversary as a vocal group. Pictures and films will follow shortly.

REVIEW OF SONORDIC
Wow. We're spectacularly proud and honored by the kind words "Recorded A Cappella Review Board" (RARB) had for us in their review of our latest album “SONOrdic”. We would like to use this opportunity to thank the vocal-groups who were willing to be a part of our release: VOX11, Vocal Line, POSTYR, Songs of the moment and Vox North. We could not have done it without them! A special thanks also goes out to our incredibly hard-working music producer Lars Reker and our conductor Tine Ohrt Hoejgaard.

Sagt om SONO
Tina Dickow, sanger og sangskriver
"I august 2010 vandt vokalgruppen SONO en optræden med mig på Jazzhouse Copenhagen. SONOs a cappella-fortolkning af Break Of Day er nyskabende og med mange finurlige detaljer. Med deres helt særlige lyd, udstråling og nærvær lagde de publikum ned, og for mig var det sjovt og spændende at synge op ad SONOs akkompagnement.
Efterfølgende inviterede jeg dem til at åbne Århus Festuge sammen med mig på Bispetorv, og denne optræden var også en succes.
Jeg synes, SONO byder ind med masser af charme, musikalitet og legesyge på den danske musikscene, og jeg ønsker dem al held og lykke i fremtiden."
Paul Erik Rask, adm. dir., Trelleborg Phønix A/S
"Når du hører SONO bliver du helt sikkert overvældet! En vellyd, der hele tiden tager nye drejninger, og med rytmisk perfektion. Ikke mange vokalensembler evner i den grad at gøre kendte sange nye. Skal du i privat sammenhæng have dine gæster til at tabe næse og mund af bare begejstring, eller skal firma arrangementet blive noget man taler om det næste års tid, så er SONO et stensikkert valg!"
Lars Fløe, organist, Egå Kirke
"SONO er en stor oplevelse. 25 unge sangere med godt humør indtager kirken på charmerende vis, og hensætter publikum i en utrolig positiv og glædesfyldt atmosfære med velklingende og medrivende hits i blændende professionelle vokalarrangementer. Jeg kan på det varmeste anbefale SONO."
Kenton Turk, Blog writer, DirectorsLounge
"The arrangements play on intentioned breathiness, percussive vocalization, an abundant use of pauses and false endings."
"This is 23 times personal, eleven male and twelve female variations on a theme. One voice splintered into reassembled puzzle pieces, raised to the power of 23."
"Playground is an album you can imagine pole-vaulting high, possibly all the way, a full-length a capella oasis in a desert of hyper-production, going where singles have gone before"
