This women’s chorus consists of enthusiastic singers aged 55 and above who have the motivation and enthusiasm to sing demanding choir works. At a certain age the voice becomes deeper and especially in low ranges a warm, soft sound can be achieved, one which is hard to create with younger voices. Therefore this choir has a very special sound. The broad repertoire ranges from the Renaissance to operetta and folk music. A voice check is necessary but no sight reading test is required. In this choir we are specially looking for sopranos.
On 11th December the choir will sing works by Gounod, Brahms and Mendelssohn at a gala Christmas concert at the Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein. In the summer term an entertainment programme with songs from the 1920´s and 30s will be performed and music ranging from Marlene Dietrich to Sara Leander will be sung.
In the summer term of 2018 the choir performed works by Mendelssohn, Rheinberger and Saint Säens on one hand and the “Stabat Mater” by Pergolesi on the other. In the past year the Carmina Burana was performed at the Vienna Musikverein and the “Messe des Pecheurs de Villerville” from Gabriel Fauré was sung. In July 2017 a concert tour to Helsinki and St. Petersburg was undertaken.
Rehearsals: Wednesday 4.15 – 5.45 p.m.
