There is no doubt the choir delivers at world class quality and many of its previous choir member have made themselves known as singers alone in scattered genres like opera, jazz and pop.
As the choir is tied to grade six to nine, members partly changes each year, but despite the consequence that the whole choir is completely replaced every four years, the spirit of the choir is kept, which the testimony of members from several generations clearly shows. The spirit is characterized perhaps especially by members of Adolf Fredrik's Girls Choir not only sing beautifully together, but also gets really great buddies - often for life.
