The V.O.I.C.E Vienna Pop & Jazz Choir performed in the Voice Mania Festival once again and was delighted to take to the stage at a sold-out concert in the Theater am Spittelberg. The singers wore new outfits in glittering gold and silver, which really highlighted the showlike character of the upbeat, groovy arrangements in the first half of the concert. There was some new choreography, too, which showed that “choir” can also be a bit different!

For the audience, the evening was exciting and even interactive, as they were able to join in twice and experience first-hand how difficult it is to sing, click your fingers, clap and stomp at the same time. Oh, and all that while singing one of several melodies at once, of course!

After the break – with an atmospheric Christmas market right in front of the door and magical fairy lights around the stage – the songs became more Christmassy and contemplative. There were plenty of moments to give you goosebumps and even the grumpiest Scrooges softened up and got into the Advent spirit.

In any case, time flew by on this wonderful musical journey from Queen, to ABBA, to Britney Spears and Imagine Dragons, to Christmas songs and arrangements by Pentatonix.

We’re looking forward to next year already!
