Vikerlased was created by LGBT people for the queer community and their supporters in 2017. What started as a passing thought to create a choir that unites LGBT people, has blossomed into a vivacious and active community choir. More than hundred singers have been part of the choir through the years. Our repertoire includes pop songs and classical choral songs from Estonia and elsewhere. We mostly sing in Estonian and English, but have sung also in other languages. Vikerlased is based in Tallinn, Estonia and has members from Estonia, Finland, Netherlands, UK, Belgium, China and Cyprus.
The current conductor of Vikerlased is Keio Soomelt.
Apart from the Estonian song festival, we have performed at prides in Latvia, Lithuania, Finland and collaborated with choirs from Finland (Out 'n loud, Helsingin queer-feministinen kuoro - HQFK, The Friends of Dorothy and Kaupungin naiset), Poland (Krakofonia) and the UK (Barberfellas). So far we have annually performed at LGBT film festival Festheart in Rakvere (Estonia) and at Gay Christians' Christmas services in Tallinn.
What does Vikerlased mean? The word “vikerkaar” means rainbow in Estonian. Vikerlased means Estonian vikings and is also the title of the first opera of Estonia.
