Audition requirements for the Concert Association 

The Concert Association engages choir members only for individual projects (this could be concerts, CD recordings or opera productions at the Salzburg Festival).

Audition requirements:
At least two arias of your choice. Since the CA isn't only a pure concert choir, but also have to manage a great amount of scenic tasks, it goes without saying that the pleasure of acting is an essential requirement.

Application: An die Konzertvereinigung Wiener Staatsopernchor
Opernring 2, A-1015 Wien. Also possible by email form.
