Christmas in Vienna in Wiener Konzerthaus

Musical Advent

You can hear the Christmas mood in Vienna. Contemplative Advent concerts, cheerful choral singing, lively musical evenings or the festive gala “Christmas in Vienna” all sound of anticipation.

"The Voices of Musical Christmas" sing in the approaching festival in the Stadthalle with stars such as Maya Hakvoort, Uwe Kröger and Pia Douwes (29 and 30 November). Cheerful singing also fills Vienna City Hall at the "Internationale Adventsingen", when the venue hosts 90 choirs from around the world (29 November – 24 December, every Fr, Sa, Su).

For lovers of ancient music, the "Pre-Christmas Baroque Concerts" in the Musensaal of the Albertina come highly recommended. Under the direction of René Clemencic, doyen of the historic practice of performance, the Clemencic Consort plays arias, duets, cantatas and suites from Monteverdi to Scarlatti (11 and 12 December). Festive brass music is played at "Christmas Brass Triptychon & Brassissimo" in the Konzerthaus with works by Händel, Vivaldi and Mozart (14 December).

A highlight of the musical Advent is the annual festival gala "Christmas in Vienna", also held in the Konzerthaus. The Christmas program is presented by the opera stars Angelika Kirchschlager, Anna Prohaska, Joel Prietro and Luca Pisaroni together with the Vienna Boys’ Choir and the Wiener Singakademie. The ORF Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien plays under the direction of Erwin Ortner (20 and 21 December).

Concerts in churches

Advent gets off to a lively and vocal start in Vienna's most famous church when The Golden Voices of Gospel celebrate the "Gospel-Night" in St. Stephen's Cathedral (23 November). A more contemplative mood is then created at the "Advent Concerts in St. Stephen's Cathedral". Works by Mozart, Bach, Schubert and Haydn can be enjoyed there, played by the soloists of the Vienna Chamber Orchestra (29 November – 22 December).

Christmas brass music plays at "Trumpet Magic in St. Anna' Church", a Baroque jewel in the city center. Johannes Moritz and Reinhard Schobesberger offer Viennese classics and Advent songs (29 November – 22 December).

The Chorvereinigung St. Augustin Choral Association sings in the Jesuitenkirche (University Church) and begins the festive period with Schubert’s German Mass (1 December). Particularly nice is Mozart’s Orphanage Mass (8 December), and for the big Christmas finale, the Coronation Mass by Mozart is celebrated at Midnight Mass (24 December).

These and countless other Advent concerts are updated daily and can be found via our Event Search.
