The choir NEUE WIENER STIMMEN (translates to “New Viennese Voices“) conducted by Christoph Wigelbeyer rehearses weekly in order to get to know and perfect a diverse musical repertoire. Additionally, every singer enjoys vocal training on a regular basis. The singers ranging from the age of 16 to 26 come from various countries as well as all parts of Austria. What connects them is the shared love and enjoyment of music and singing together. This leads to the quality and joy onstage that the audiences know and love.
The highlights of the past few years include Hollywood in Vienna from 2012 to 2016, the opening ceremony of the Summa Cum Laude International Youth Music Festival in the Vienna Stephansdom with more than 1.000 young adults from all over the world. Additionally, the choir performed at the Life Ball in 2014 and 2015 and took part in the concert Best of John Williams in February and December of 2016. Other highlights include performances in the Schauspielhaus Wien, as well as offering a musical opening to TEDxVienna.
This fall, the choir will be part of a production of Leonard Bernstein’s “MASS”
In their 2019 concert “(A)LIVE!” they will exclusively perform pieces by contemporary Austrian composers.
NEUE WIENER STIMMEN is supported by the Austrian Bundeskanzleramt (BKA Kunstsektion) and cooperates with Jeunesse, Musisches Zentrum Wien, wienXtra, the Viennese Jugendzentrum and Hunger auf Kunst und Kultur.
