Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we have adapted our activities for the summer term 2021. The summer term 2021 will be offered from May till September. The winter term will begin as usual in October. We are accepting new singers in all voices in October.
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.
Please register for one choir only!
Simply sing with us!
For the group Voice Club Beginners, Femmes Vocales and Singing Generations no audition or voice check is necessary.
Attention: Voice Club Beginners cannot have any more female voices. We would recommend you to register for Voice Club Women instead.
Voice check, but no sight reading:
For the groups Voice Club Advanced, Voice Club Women, Symphonic Women’s Choir, Femmes Vocales and Männersache a voice check is necessary, however no sight reading test is required.
Attention: Voice Club Advanced cannot have any more female voices. We would recommend you to register for Voice Club Women instead.
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 new students, international exchange students and people new to Vienna come to our choirs and have few contacts outside of their own university department. To make it easier for you to join our community, we are organizing a welcome concert with a “Speed Friending” event in mid-October. After the concert there will be dancing and partying! We hope that the situation will allow this event to take place in October. We will definitely try it — either indoors on an evening or during the day on a weekend. It is very important for us to get to know you guys!
