New male and female voices can join us in October 2020!
In addition to our weekly rehearsals, we have one or two weekend retreats each semester. In order to ensure a good musical standard, at least 70% attendance to the rehearsals is necessary. The entire schedule is conveyed at the beginning of each term.
You do not have to be a student of the Vienna University to join the choirs!
In order to meet the various needs, interests and standards of our singers, we offer nine choirs with different audition requirements.
The groups Voice Club, Concert Choir, Männersache, Femmes Vocales and Singing Generations are for singers without much prior experience, singers who are starting after a long break or for those who do not have more time than to visit one weekly rehearsal. Depending on the choir group, you can just come and sing along, or get a voice check done so that we can determine your voice range.
The groups Philharmonic Choir, Symphonic Choir and Symphonic Women’s Choir sing more ambitious works, which demand more commitment and time. Depending on the group, there are voice checks or auditions necessary.
Simply sing with us!
For the groups Voice Club Beginners and Singing Generations no audition or voice check are necessary.
Attention: For Voice Club Beginners only men can still join us. Female voices can choose another choir group or join the Voice Club Beginners in October 2020.
Voice check, but no sight reading:
For the groups Symphonic Women’s Choir, Männersache and Femmes Vocales a voice check is necessary, however no sight reading test is required..
Auditions for advanced singers
The groups Philharmonic Choir, Symphonic Choir and Voice Club Advanced are for experienced singers. An audition is necessary for this group where a sight reading test and basics of vocal technique are required. However, you do not have to prepare anything. This choir sings challenging works demanding more ambition and time from the singers. In order to ensure a high standard, it is necessary that singers attend more intense rehearsals schedules and can learn parts of the works individually.
Many first year students, international students and all who are generally new to Vienna join our community and have yet to meet people outside of their own university courses.
