Austria's First Women's Chamber Orchestra Austria's First Women's Chamber Orchestra  


Sunday, 06/21/2015, 11 am

In case of bad weather at St. Paul Parish – PAHO, 5 Jura-Soyfer-Gasse, Vienna 1100

Austria's first women's chamber orchestra, headed by Kati Marothy, was founded 33 years ago, at a time when highly skilled female musicians were not given the opportunity to join most of Vienna's large orchestras. The women's chamber orchestra attempts to tackle subjects of great importance in today's times. Emphasis is placed on subjects such as peace, tolerance, human rights, slavery, human trafficking, and others.

Austria's first women's chamber orchestra is well-known for its versatility and creativity in its programming. It performs a large number of world premieres and first performances, as well as attaching great importance to the work of female composers. To the best of its abilities, the orchestra has invited female conductors from all over the world. The musicians have garnered the attention of a large audience through the choice of its programs, often incorporating certain subjects into concert evenings, as well as by combining classical and contemporary music. The participation in international festivals at home and abroad is just as much a core activity of the orchestra as yearly foreign tours.

Deep gazes on necklines... and women's hearts – marriage proposals – an emotional roller coaster – a fivesome! Five powerful voices – groovy, heartwarming. The girls inflame the mood to a boiling point with their powerful beat-box and soulful choirs. With their songs on chat-ups, burnt hearts, and why people over-salt soups, the singers do not miss out on anything when it comes to all things love. No instant meal, but self-composed songs and surprising arrangements.

A young female artist, a long-lasting journey, departure and escape, stories, impressions, experience, perception, and: a mysterious drawer, an intimate archive of thoughts in which the sensitive observer collected and kept all her experiences.
A long time has passed until her songs now finally found their way onto stage. The audience can look forward to a versatile singer and song writer who convinces with her sunny genuineness and touching self-composed songs.

Saturday, 09/12/2015, 7 pm  (alternative date due to bad weather)

The all-female folk band W.i.t.Ch. (the abbreviation stands for 'Whiskey in the Charts' and alludes to the Irish popular tune 'Whiskey in the Jar') was founded in Vienna in 1997. The basic setup comprising violin, guitar, e-bass and percussion, complemented by more instruments such as bagpipes, accordion and contra bass, the band offers an amazing sound spectrum. However, it is the joy of polyphonic singing which is at the center of the ensemble's music and which is its greatest strength.

The lady knows how to play the piano, and that's what she does, too...! Ulli Wigger is a pianist, singer, composer, songwriter, as well as arranger, and excels especially through her extraordinary impulsiveness at the piano. The talented, petite musician is band leader of her ensemble 'Ulli Wigger und Band'; her arrangements, which tend to sound rock music-like, are perfectly performed by her 'busters', as she lovingly calls her band. Her motto: Music is supposed to connect people and to open hearts!
