Symphonic Women’s Choir
This is a women’s chorus for experienced singers where symphonic choir literature, oratorios a cappella pieces as well as pop and world music are sung. In all periods of music history challenging choral literature has been composed for women’s voices and this group dedicates itself to this repertoire. This choir mainly sings works for women’s voices but projects with the mixed choirs are also undertaken. Singers in this choir have certain sight reading skills and basic knowledge of vocal techniques. This choir is also a networking platform for professional women and the age structure is between 30 and 60 years.
In December the Choir will sing two concerts „Abba and the 70s“. In May 2023 there will be concerts with “Songs from the German Romantic Period” and in June concerts with „Ein Deutsches Requiem“ by Johannes Brahms will be sung.
In June 2022 three concerts with the Music of John Williams from Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter were sung at the Wiener Musikverein and the main courtyard of the Vienna University.
In the past years concerts with W. A. Mozart’s Requiem were sung at St. Stephen’s Cathedral and Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 was performed at the Vienna Musikverein. Other past projects were “A Ceremony of Carols” by Benjamin Britten and a programme by Russian composers.
We are particularly looking for sopranos in this choir, but all singers are very welcome. No audition is necessary for this choir, we suggest you come to the choir and rehearse for four weeks. Then we offer a voice check where we can determine your exact voice range.
Rehearsals: Thursday 6 – 7.45 p.m.
