Subject Festival Voicemania 2013

Voice Mania

When it hums, twitters or growls from Vienna's balconies on 8 November, then there's a clear case of Voice Mania. The most versatile instrument is the human voice, as the vocalists prove at the popular a cappella festival at various venues until 8 December.

They come from many countries and all genres: The passionate producers of quirky are tones are also at home with classical music or with jazz, blues and pop. Around 40 ensembles and soloists delight the crowd with all sorts of vocal arts ranging from harmonious melodies to daredevil yodelers.

Popular on the international a capella scene is Sweden's Real Group. From Finland come Rajaton and Fork. A highlight is the Brazilian countertenor Edson Cordeiro with a vocal range of over four octaves. Performing at Voice Mania for the first time is the Albert Hera Quintet from Italia.

Austria also has strong vocalists, as can be witnessed in the concert "Austrian Collection". Performers include Safer Six, Wiener Blond and Die Echten. And an a cappella festival should not be missing Austrian stars such as the Rounder Girls, who put on their own concert

A cappella to go

On the opening day of "Balcanto" (8 November), the vocal artists give their audience a song to go. Before that, however, they can also be heard performing on balconies on Wiener Graben and Petersplatz, in churches and in the Ringstrassen-Galerien on Kärntner Ring. Those who want to will receive musical accompaniment to finish with on the way home, at least for one street. The singers lead interested participants on a walk full of cheerful song.
