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.
In the summer term some wonderful pieces from “Lieder und Gesänge aus Des Knaben Wunderhorn” by Gustav Mahler will be sung.
In the past year the choir sang parts from „My fair Lady“, as well as the Mass in a major by Josef Gabriel Rheinberger.
Other projects were a gala Christmas concert at the Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein, works by Mendelssohn, Rheinberger and Saint Säens, the “Stabat Mater” by Pergolesi , the Carmina Burana and the “Messe des Pecheurs de Villerville” by Gabriel Fauré were sung. In July 2017 a concert tour to Helsinki and St. Petersburg was undertaken.
In this choir we are specially looking for sopranos. A voice check is necessary but no sight reading test is required.
Rehearsals: Wednesday 4.15 – 5.45 p.m. "Stöckl Building"
