Off to the cathedral! Leave the Christmas hustle at the gates of the cathedral and look forward to atmospheric, pre-Christmas choral music sung by young singers in the impressive nave of st. stephen's cathedral. Romantic and neoclassical compositions by Camille Saint-Saëns, Gabriele Fauré, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Engelbert Humperdinck will be the focus of the concert.

Around the enchanting-sounding "Oratorio de Noël" by Camille Saint-Saëns you will hear a diverse program of choral music for the Advent and Christmas season. This year, the viennese children's and youth choirs will sing in German, French, Latin, Polish, Russian and Ukrainian. In doing so, they want to set an example for international understanding and peace.
