This is an advanced choral group which sings mainly symphonic and a-cappella classical works as well projects involving pop, jazz und world music. Singers in this choir have musical experience and certain sight reading skills, but the level is slightly easier than in the Philharmonic Choir.
In December 2022, the choir will sing the “Schicksalslied” and motets by Johannes Brahms. In March 2023 arrangements from “Cats” will be sung in the concert series “Musicals and More”. and in June Carl Orff’s “Carmina Burana” will be performed in the Wiener Musikverein.
In May 2022, the choir sang World Music from Africa at the gala concert “Concert du Continets” in the Vienna Musikverein. In June there were three concerts with the music of John Williams from Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter. Other projects included Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, the Mozart Requiem and the rarely sung Mass in E minor by Anton Bruckner.
For the audition, a sight reading test and a voice check are required and there is an age limit of 40 years. We are primarily looking for tenors and sopranos, but all voices are welcome.
