Our Sing Along Concerts in Vienna and Salzburg offer individual singers and choirs the opportunity to perform an important work of choral music in Vienna’s St. Stephen’s Cathedral or Salzburg Cathedral in a professionally organized concert. For 16 years, individual amateur singers and choirs from all over the world come to Austria to be part of this unique Sing Along experience.
Under the direction of a renowned choirmaster you will be studying the relevant piece for several days in rehearsals during the Sing Along! Choir Festival. As part of the Sing Along! Festival Choir newly formed for each piece, you will then perform the work together with your fellow international singers, the Cathedral Orchestra and renowned soloists in a festive final concert in front of a broad audience in Vienna's St. Stephen’s Cathedral or Salzburg Cathedral.

Masterpieces of English Choir Music
3 to 5 November 2022 | St. Stephen's Cathedral, Vienna

  ONLINE-REGISTRATION  

On the occasion of the 150th birthday of Ralph Vaughan Williams, St. Stephen’s Cathedral Vienna for the first time invites a renowned choir director from the UK, David Wordsworth, to conduct a Sing Along Concert. Besides the music of RVW, you will work on music also composed in the UK, like Handel’s Zadok the Priest, Elgar’s Te Deum and Ireland’s Great Love Hath No Man. By the way, these composers have anniversaries in 2022 as well: the 60th anniversary of John Ireland’s death and Edward Elgar’s 165th birthday.

Under the direction of David Wordsworth, you will study the pieces over several days in rehearsals. As a crowning finale, you will perform them in St. Stephen's Cathedral as a sing-along concert in front of a broad audience with the many other singers from all over the world, the Vienna Cathedral Organist and a renowned soloist.

W. A. Mozart, Coronation Mass & Sparrow Mass
25 to 28 August 2022 | Salzburg Cathedral

  ONLINE-REGISTRATION  

Registration only EXCLUSIVELY for the concert on Saturday evening and Workshops - Coronation Mass & Vesperae Solennes de Confessore.
The maximum number of participants for the high mass on Sunday has been reached.

At the very last concert of János Czifra as Domkapellmeister, perform Mozart's Coronation Mass (KV 317) and Sparrow Mass (KV 220) in Salzburg Cathedral, both of which were premiered here. The Coronation Mass surpasses all other Salzburg masses in its musical expressiveness. The programme is rounded off with parts of the Vesperae solennes de Confessore and the dense and cheerful Sparrow Mass by Mozart. The Mass was given its nickname in the 19th century because of the figures in the Sanctus and Benedictus that are reminiscent of the twittering of sparrows. 

Directed by János Czifra, Domkapellmeister (Musical Director) at Salzburg Cathedral, you will study the pieces with your fellow international singers during rehearsals held in German and English. On Saturday, you will perform the Coronation Mass and parts of the Vesperae solennes de Confessore with the Salzburg Cathedral Orchestra and well-known soloists. On Sunday, you will sing the Sparrow Mass during the Holy Mass from the organ loft of the Cathedral.

J. Haydn, The Creation
6 to 8 July 2023 | St. Stephen's Cathedral, Vienna

  ONLINE-REGISTRATION  

Perform J. Haydn's Creation as part of the Sing Along! Festival Chorus, 225 years after its first performance in 1798 at St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna. As if driven by a higher power, Haydn created this elemental, large-scale work in just two years and fell seriously ill shortly after the premiere. The 66-year-old Haydn describes the act of creation in a way that is both powerful and uplifting.

The work will be worked on in workshops lasting several days under the direction of Prof. Gerald Wirth, president and artistic director of the Vienna Boys' Choir, and then performed together with the Vienna Cathedral Orchestra and renowned soloists as a festive final concert in Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral.

W. A. Mozart, Coronation Mass
& G. F. Händel, Dettingen Te Deum
13 to 15 July 2023 | St. Stephen's Cathedral, Vienna

  ONLINE-REGISTRATION  

Sing W.A. Mozart's Coronation Mass and Handel's Dettingen Te Deum 280 years after its premiere in a sing-along concert at St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna. Because of their length and the musical inspiration Mozart gained from Handel's music, these two works fit together perfectly and fill a concert evening to perfection.

Under the direction of Prof. Gerald Wirth, Artistic Director and President of the Vienna Boys' Choir, you will study the works over several days in workshops and then perform them as part of the Sing Along! Festival Choir formed as a result in a large-scale evening concert in Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral. Accompanied by the orchestra of the Vienna Cathedral Music and renowned soloists.
