Karin Oldgren graduated as a Church Musician from the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm 1991 and continued with studies in orchestral and choral conducting which led to her Diploma Concert in 1996. For ten years she was the conductor of the Stockholm Academic Male Chorus. In 2002 Oldgren formed the St. John's Chamber Choir in Stockholm, and with them she explored a wide palette of choral music, from major classical works to innovative stage projects and premieres. She has also been a Senior Lecturer and Director Musices at Örebro University.

Today Oldgren is the Artistic director of three ensembles: Petri Sångare and St. Petri Youth Choir - SPUK (Malmö) and the Women's choir La Cappella (Uppsala). In addition to this, she is frequently engaged as a teacher, lecturer and conductor and has worked with the Swedish Radio Choir and Norrköping Symphony Orchestra, among others. “I am driven by my musical desire and curiosity, and the aspiration to create art together with others - to give fellow human beings the opportunity for spiritual and artistic development and deepening through music.”
