One of Canberra’s highly-respected choirs is bringing us on a journey through Austrian culture.
The Austrian Choir Canberra is a SATB choir and was formed in 1981. They have an extensive repertoire of Austrian, German, English and International songs, ranging from serious compositions and traditional music to the more modern ‘Heimatlieder’ and other folk music, ballads and the unforgettable Viennese waltzes. The Choir gains immense pleasure in providing its audiences with enjoyment and, at times, some nostalgia.
The Choirs’ main objective is to have fun and enjoy the musical experience while at the same time achieving a high level of excellence in its performances. The Choir is fortunate to have a number of talented singers and musicians, which enables it to present solos, duets, quartets and instrumental pieces.
The Choir has performed at the Wesley Music Centre Lunchtime Concert Series, at the High Court, Floriade and the Multicultural Food and Dance Festivals and sings regularly at Churches, Nursing Homes and Hospitals. It is invited every year to celebrate the Austrian National Day at the Austrian Embassy.
Under the name ‘Austrian Australian Choir’, they toured Austria and the Czech Republic in 2007 with standing ovations at each concert. In 2010 we had a very successful ‘encore’ tour to Germany and Austria and again in 2013 where we sang in St Peter’s Basilica and St Ignatius in Rome and presented concerts in Zurich, Salzburg and Vienna.
It is now 2022 and the Austrian Choir is set to deliver their first performance after too long a wait.
