In June 2009 The Danish National Chamber Orchestra invited the acclaimed indie rock band Choir of Young Believers to join forces in an interpretation of the band’s award-winning European debut album. Two sold-out concerts resulted in this extraordinary concert film.

Reviewers were thrilled and called the concert “…a sensual delight, but also a masterly and natural interpretation…” 50 musicians on stage take the audience on a journey into a musical dreamland ? no explanations, no words, no limits… Listening to Choir of Young Believers, Rolling Stone magazine says, is “like hearing Radiohead’s Thom Yorke in the middle of a Sixties Roy Orbison single”. A young and ambitious band on the rise, with music “well worth investigating” (The Guardian).
