Choral workshop

Enthusiastic singers are cordially invited to participate in the choral workshop which is free of charge apart from the registration fee.
The culminating highlight of the workshop is the performance as the festival choir at the Gala Concerts in the Stadtpfarrkirche in Murau on April 26 and 27, together with the Klagenfurt-Wörthersee Chamber Choir.
This year’s program includes pieces such as “If you love me” by Thomas Tallis, “Ave Verum Corpus” by William Byrd, “Tråg mi, Wind” by Christian Dreo, “Ave Maria” by Franz Biebl, “Northern Lights” by Ola Gjeilo, “Viva la Vida” by Coldplay, “O Salutaris Hostia” by Ēriks Ešenvalds and many more. Furthermore, two (at the most three) prize winners’ pieces that were submitted as part of the Composition Competition and chosen by the jury for the premiere will be rehearsed.

Günter Wallner of the Klagenfurt Theater, artistic director and conductor of the Gala Concert will take on the workshop direction. Dorit Machatsch and Stefanie Planton will also work with the participants.

What is new this year is that rehearsal scheduling will take into account professional commitments and school schedules. Two alternatives are available:

  1. Full-time choral workshop - April 15–17 (all-day), April 23 until 27 (evening)
  2. Part-time choral workshop - April 15 and 16, April 23 until 27 (evening)

Participants of the full-time workshop have the opportunity to take part in a voice training with vocal coach Dorit Machatsch (individual lessons or group lessons / max. 3 persons).
Participants of the part-time workshop will rehearse fewer pieces.
