Touché (SE/DK/NL)

Touché is a prize-winning vocal group of 12, based in Scandinavia. Conducted by Jesper Holm, the group captivates audiences all over the world with its unique performances of big band music and vocal jazz, with the voice as their only instrument. 

Over the years, Touché has developed into a group consisting mostly of professional young musicians from Scandinavia. With voices ranging from deep bass to soaring lead soprano, exploring the field of big band music applied to voices has become a central concept for the group. With the title of ”Vocal Big Band”, Touché has had the pleasure of collaborating with artists such as Danish jazz vocalist Sinne Eeg, the DR (Danish Radio) Big Band, among others. Most recently, the group has been touring Scandinavia, Europe and North America, performing live on TV, in large concert halls as well as in intimate jazz club settings. 

The timeless legacy of Big Band music in combination with the group’s persistent striving for the perfect sound has earned Touché their reputation – no one does it like Touché does!

When the last few notes had faded away this Tuesday, the audience immediately got up
like one man: standing ovations were sort of the only option.
