Particularly before Christmas, many people seek the peace and contemplation of St. Stephen's Cathedral to prepare for the most beautiful time of the year. The Christmas concerts in St. Stephen's Cathedral invite you to pause for a while - moments when you can escape the hustle and bustle of the pre-Christmas period and return to the essential things in life.
These intimate evenings are filled with festive chamber music and the most beautiful Christmas songs, skillfully interpreted by the Harmonia Ensemble Vienna, soprano and baritone solos contribute to the contemplative atmosphere.
Aside from playing in orchestras, the musicians of the Harmonia Ensemble Vienna perform with great efficacy and pleasure as a chamber ensemble, always with the aim of broadening their musical abilities and horizons. The musicians thus followed an old tradition, as is customary with established orchestras such as the Vienna Philharmonic.
Get your tickets and experience a magical pre-Christmas evening at St. Stephen's Cathedral!
Giant-Organ-Concerts at Christmas
At the Sundays before Christmas, cathedral organist Ernst Wally on the Giant Organ will "pull out all the stops" for you, to present you with a varied programme from J.S. Bach to C. Franck and the most famous Christmas songs. The new organ console is centrally located in the nave, so you can watch the organist play the five manuals and the pedals with masterful virtuosity. For further information please see the page of the Giant-Organ-Concerts at Christmas.
