The opening event of Voice Mania is "Balcanto" on 6 November. High-ranking artistes sing, belt out and swing in a potpourri of music ranging from pop to classic from balconies and church galleries and the Ringstrassen Galerien in Vienna city center. There's also a capella to go: vocalists accompany fans of music part of the way along Kärntner Strasse, singing on request and with lots of fun.
Rock, Beatbox, Comedy
Cult bands such as Maybebop (D, with a new program!), basta (D), Rock4 (NL, picture above) and iNtrmzzo (NL) gather their fans at the MuTh. New Voice Mania participants such as Cap Pela (E), Tuuletar (FIN) and The Soul of Gospel (A) as well as wonder-voice Theo Bleckmann (USA) move and seduce audiences with hits in an exotic, spirited and humorous way at Theater am Spittelberg, the Metropol and the Reformed Church. A focus on Austria also proves that the domestic scene is booming.
Specials such as "The Long Night of the A Cappella", a children's program and the "A Cappella Open Mic Casting Show" are joined this year by the premiere of "Voice Mania Short Cuts" – an evening of vocal artistry, beatboxing, freestyle session and body acrobatics.
