Philharmonia Chorus Vienna


The Vienna Philharmonia Chorus is a professional opera and concert chorus that performs all over the world. Founded in 2002 at the initiative of Gerard Mortier, it was originally known as the Ruhr Triennale Chorus and/or the Baden-Baden Festival Chorus, being associated with those two festivals.

Since 2006 the renamed "Vienna Philharmonia Chorus" has been performing as an independent choral society, working with renowned conductors including Claudio Abbado, Marc Minkowski, Kent Nagano, Thomas Hengelbrock, Zubin Mehta, Christian Thielemann and Riccardo Muti and making regular guest appearances in major international opera productions.
