Voice Club Beginners
Due to popular demand a new choral group for beginners will be offered in October. Meet cool people from different faculties and have fun singing together. The easier repertoire enables an easy (re-) introduction to the world of music. Lighter choral literature (pop and classical music) is sung and the focus lies on teaching singing techniques, sight reading and harmonic comprehension. No audition is needed for this group- just come and sing along! The age limit for this choir is 35 years.
In this choir (course) you will participate in the following activities:
12 of 90 minutes units: weekly choral rehearsals
2 of 60 minutes units: small group vocal and breathing technique lessons
2 of 60 minutes units: small group music theory and rhythm exercises
Participation at a gala concert at the Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein
Course fee € 90
The repertoire consisting of three- to four-part pop arrangements and easier classical works will be performed on December 18th in a concert at the Musikverein.
With this group we intend to introduce you to music or refresh your singing abilities. Therefore this chorus will be offered only in the winter term. In case you want to continue thereafter, you can audition one of the other groups in January 2021. From former experience we know that many singers have high musical abilities and prior experience but are reluctant to audition individually. This group offers a chance to sing without an audition for the first term, get to know the conductor personally and audition at a later stage.
Many new students, international exchange students and people new to Vienna come to the Voice Club Beginners and have few contacts outside of their own university department. To make it easier for you to join our community, we are organizing a welcome concert with a “Speed Friending” event in mid-October. After the concert there will be dancing and partying! We hope that the situation will allow this event to take place in October. We will definitely try it — either indoors on an evening or during the day on a weekend. It is very important for us to get to know you guys!
Rehearsals: Thursday 8.30 – 10.00 p.m.
