Summer Serenade

Let Cantus Novus Vienna serenade you into the summer season with all its delightful nuances. Our program features works by Felix Mendelssohn (“Lerchengesang”, “Die Nachtigall”), Eric Whitacre (“This Marriage”), Arnold Schönberg (“Schein uns, du liebe Sonne”), and George Gershwin (“Summertime”), among others.

Join us for our “Summer Serenade” concerts on June 18th and 23rd as we premiere in two new venues: the magnificent Festsaal of the Bezirksamt Landstrasse and the modern Nordbahnsaal in the new Nordbahnviertel district in Leopoldstadt.

About Cantus Novus Vienna

Cantus Novus Wien, based at the Vienna Diocesan Conservatory for Church Music, has been directed by Thomas Holmes since 2001. In 2018, it was named “Choir of the Year” by the Vienna Choir Forum for its outstanding choral work. Cantus Novus Wien regularly showcases its broad stylistic range: at the international film music gala “Hollywood in Vienna” 2019, the consecration of the new organ at St. Stephen’s cathedral in Vienna in 2020 or in the ambitious video productions.

The choir’s repertoire includes oratorios, among others, by Handel (Israel in Egypt; Messiah) and Haydn (The Creation). And the Requiem settings by Mozart, Brahms, Verdi and Fauré. With contemporary music as one of the focal points, the choir premiered works by Wolfgang Sauseng, Ruth McGuire, Wolfgang Reisinger, Markus Pfandler, Wolfram Wagner and Annamaria Kowalsky.
