Symphonic Women’s Choir

This is a women’s chorus for experienced singers where symphonic choir literature, oratorios a cappella pieces as well as pop and world music are sung. In all periods of music history challenging choral literature has been composed for women's voices and this group dedicates itself to this repertoire. This choir mainly sings works for women's voices but projects with the mixed choirs are also undertaken. Singers in this choir have certain sight reading skills and basic knowledge of vocal techniques. This choir is also a networking platform for professional women and the age structure is between 25 and 60 years.

The choir sings two classical, and one pop program per academic year. On December 18th , Christmas carol arrangements will be sung in the Wiener Musikverein. Gustav Mahler's 8th symphony will be performed on May 19th and 20th, 2024 at the Konzerthaus, and a cappella pop works will be sung in June.

In May 2023 concerts with “Songs from the German Romantic Period” and in June concerts with „Ein Deutsches Requiem“ by Johannes Brahms were sung. In December the Choir sang two concerts „Abba and the 70s“Past projects include the Music of John Williams from Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, W. A. Mozart's Requiem, Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 2 and a “A Ceremony of Carols” by Benjamin Britten.

We are particularly looking for mezzo-sopranos and altos in this choir, but all singers are very welcome. This choir requires an audition with a sight reading test and a voice check and the upper age limit to join is 55.
