Femmes Vocales

This choir consists of singers aged 50 and above who have the enthusiasm and commitment to sing demanding choral works. This is also the time when professional and family obligations are not so challenging and there is finally more time for oneself. The wide-ranging repertoire ranges from classical to musicals to folk songs.

On December 13th and 15th, concerts “The Roaring 80s” with music by Queen and Jennifer Rush will be sung and on June 9th and 10th, 2025, demanding symphonic music from France and Switzerland with works by Claude Debussy, Gabriel Faure and Arthur Honegger will be performed. These works are seldom performed original compositions for women's choir and orchestra.

From 9th to 14th September there will be an optional choir workshop for women’s choirs in Vorarlberg.

Previous projects included songs from “Des Knaben Wunderhorn” by Gustav Mahler, parts of the musical “My Fair Lady”, the Mass in A major by Josef Gabriel Rheinberger, the “Stabat Mater” by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi and the “Messe des Pecheurs de Villerville” by Gabriel Fauré. In April 2024, a concert tour was undertaken to China, where concerts were sung in Beijing, Shanghai and Xian.

You do not need to audition for this choir for the first semester. At the end of the first semester, there will be an evaluation, as musical and basic sight-reading skills are required. Singers who do not want to do this audition immediately can also sing in the Voice Club Beginners for a year and then switch to this choir.
We are particularly looking for altos in this choir, but all singers are welcome. The age structure of the choir is between 50 and 75 years and the highest entry age is 65.

Rehearsals: Wednesday 6 – 7.30 p.m., Stöckl
