The GUMPOLDSKIRCHNER VOX HUMANA CHAMBER CHOIR, was founded in 1966 by the composer and teacher of music Prof. Josef Wolfgang Ziegler (also founder of the famous children’s choir "Gumpoldskirchner Spatzen"). Since its foundation the Chamber choir of Gumpoldskirchen VOX HUMANA has built up quite a reputation for itself both in Austria and abroad. Countless prizes and top ratings at international choir competitions as well as radio broadcasts and appearances in concert in Germany, Belgium, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Israel and Austria are a tribute to the ensemble's manifold activities and high level of performance.
Intensive voice-training enables the choir to maintain its high quality although all members are pure amateurs!
It is the choir's objective to remain open and to cherish all currents and styles of European and non-European choir music. The repertory comprises mainly a-capella music ranging from Renaissance until contemporary works as well as the most important works of choir and orchestra, as, e.g.. Mozart's "Requiem", Haydn's "Nelson Mass", Bach cantatas, Purcell's anthems, Haendel's Messiah, Bach's Matthaeus Passion, Beethoven's Choral Fantasy, 9th Symphony etc.
