The Polytech Choir

The Polytech Choir is an academic male choir, established in 1900. It is one of the most prestigious male choirs in Finland and all of Europe. Our singers – around 80, all told – are either students or alumni at the Aalto University, located next to Helsinki in Espoo, Finland.


The Choir approaches music with a particularly high level of ambition. We commission and premiere new works for male chorus (and, on occasion, orchestra or solo instruments) on a regular basis, but are equally at home with historic and contemporary works, across the spectrum, from classical to popular. Although our singers are ambitious amateurs, our conductor and two vocal coaches are accomplished professionals in their respective fields.


The Polytech Choir cooperates with significant symphony orchestras such as BBC Symphony Orchestra, Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra.


Saara Aittakumpu has been the conductor and artistic director of the Polytech Choir since 2013
