Daniel Åberg was born in 1976. Since he was a child he has been singing in choirs, starting as a seven year old boy in Uppsala Domkyrkas Gosskör. He continued his career as a singer in many different choirs in Uppsala, a
city which is well-known for its long-standing vocal tradition. Daniel became interested in himself leading a choir, and his first engagement was with Gästrike-Hälsinge Nationskör in Uppsala. In 2001 he was elected conductor of Uppsala Vokalensemble, and at the same time Daniel was deputy conductor of Uppsala Domkyrkas Gosskör.
Daniel studied choir conducting under the guidance of Stefan Parkman at Uppsala University. In 2006 he took his diploma in choir education at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. In parallel Daniel took an exam as a soloist
singer. Thus, Daniel often performs as a soloist in the great baroque opuses such as by Bach, Handel, and Monteverdi, but he has also acted in more recent music ranging from Haydn to Orff and modern days. Daniel has worked together with, among others, Concerto Copenhagen, DR Underholdningsorkestret, Music Vitae and Gävle symfoniorkester. Since 2007 Daniel is employed as a singer in the Danish National Vocal Ensemble, which is intimately linked with the Danish Radio.
