Gala Winners' Concert - Golden Hall, Musikverein

This evening, 2000 guests were treated to a spectacular celebratory concert at the infamous Musikverein. The CCOC were among one of 7 choirs asked to perform and they did an amazing job of Servants' Chorus!  We never saw Ann and Errol look more proud!  Coming first was the Victoria Children's Choir, also from Canada.  They did a stupendous arrangement called Epitaph for Moonlight by R. Murray Schafer that truly showcased the fine acoustics of the Golden Hall.  After intermission we were treated to 6 orchestras from Taipei, Netherlands, Hungary, Australia, and 1st place winners the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra.  CANADA ROCKS!

After the concert, the choir and the parents all went to the City Hall of Vienna for food and drinks.  There were lots of email exchanges and photo taking!  We are absolutely elated!

In case you are missing your children's beautiful singing, here's a link to 2 of the pieces they performed at the Liechenstein Museum.  I wish I could have videotaped the competition and the gala concerts but unfortunately we were not allowed to.  Enjoy!

  1. Thank you so much to everyone who has been posting, and especially the photos and now Youtube! It is certainly the next best thing to being there. I love finding a new entry. Much appreciated.

    And congratulations indeed to the whole team. How very exciting. My only concern: How in the world is my kid ever going to go back to her regular life again....?
