The Stockholm Academic Choir (AK) was founded in 1931 as Sweden’s first college choir for mixed voices. Its name at the time was Stockholmsstudenternas Körsällskap. In 1937, the name Akademiska kören (Academic Choir) was adopted. The baton has been waved over the years by many renowned conductors and the choir has performed at events such as remembrance ceremonies on Swedish television.
