A concert that will lift your spirit! Celebrating the Austrian Choir Canberra’s contribution to our cultural life as they draw from their unique Austrian heritage. Come prepared for 40 minutes of uplifting choral, solo, duet, strings and pipe organ. Supported by the Forrest National Chamber Orchestra & accompanied on piano and pipe organ by Linus Lee.
The Austrian Choir Canberra is an SATB choir that was formed in 1981. This highly respected Choir is a major force in the promotion of Austrian culture and music in Canberra and the wider Australian community. With their extensive repertoire of Austrian, German, English and international songs, the Choir gains immense pleasure from providing its audiences with enjoyment and, at times, some nostalgia.
The Choir has 40 active members and is fortunate to have a number of talented singers and musicians, which enables it to present solos, duets, quartets and instrumental pieces.
The Choir sings regularly at Harmonie German Club functions as well as in nursing homes, retirement villages and churches. It is invited every year to celebrate the Austrian National Day at the Austrian Embassy. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 7.30 to 9pm at the Harmonie German Club in Narrabundah.
