MUSICA FICTA, based in Copenhagen, is a professional vocal ensemble, founded in 1996 by the composer and conductor Bo Holten. With this group he has realised his vision of a highly flexible ensemble, where the classical Oxbridge early music ideal is combined with the warmth of the Scandinavian choral sound.
The artistic director Bo Holten belongs, as a choral conductor, to the world elite, having for the past 16 years conducted the BBC Singers as their regular Guest Conductor. Bo Holten was also founder, and for 17 years artistic director, of the vocal ensemble Ars Nova Copenhagen. In 2007 Holten was appointed chief conductor of the Flemish Radio Choir in Brussels.
