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 2019 arrangements from the musical “My Fair Lady” and, in the series “Mass compositions as an Art Form” a mass by Joseph Gabriel Rheinberger will be performed.
In December 2018 the choir sang works by Gounod, Brahms and Mendelssohn at a gala Christmas concert at the Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein. In the summer term of 2018 works by Mendelssohn, Rheinberger and Saint Säens on one hand and the “Stabat Mater” by Pergolesi on the other were performed. In the past year 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"
