ALE SCHWESTER, ALE BRIDER
Gala matinee with the Vienna Jewish Choir and Erwin Steinhauer
Choral music | Literature | Concert | Reading | Adults
The Wiener Jüdische Chor (Vienna Jewish Choir) have been singing their songs and promoting an understanding of Jewish culture among the people of Austria for thirty years now. They have performed throughout Europe — from Bucharest to London, and Leipzig to Rome — and also in the USA. These numerous international guest performances stand testament to the choir’s high artistic standards. Their programme is complemented by images created by the artist Dvori Barzilai, who has her roots in Israel but now lives in Vienna. Erwin Steinhauer needs absolutely no introduction to a Viennese audience. Here he reads texts by Jewish Austrian authors who fell victim to the Nazi regime. In a biting performance, he plays his part to ensure their names are never forgotten.
