Austrian Choir Heimatecho

The Austrian mixed Choir “Heimatecho” has been singing together since 1980 when a group of members of the Austrian-Canadian Society got together to rehearse some traditional songs for the Christmas party at the newly opened Austrian-Canadian Cultural Centre. Over the years 30 singers joined the choir, which performs at various club functions and also sings at senior homes and hospitals. New singers are always welcome to join the choir. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m.

Choir Report

Dear Friends and Members:

Fall is here with all its awesome colours. It is October and the Choir Members are all well and with good spirit. We had a short get together at the club having lunch and a delicious treat afterwards. This was an opportunity to see all and feel great joy. We’re all wishing to be able to practice our traditional Austrian music.

On October 24th at 1 pm, the Club is holding a special function in the Main Hall, celebrating the Austrian National Holiday. Jeannie Park will play the music for the Canadian and Austrian anthems, supported by the beautiful Tenor voices of Philip Park and Reinhard Skoracki. President Frank Meixner will give a short speech to welcome the Guests.

A special honour Austrian General Consult Nick Demiantschuk will present the greetings from the Austrian Government with all the new happenings in Business and the wonderful treasures of Austrian Culture.

There is lots of Music coming, Vic will show “Klingendes Österreich” by Sepp Forcher and it will show the most beautiful places in all of Austria. The Film will be 2 hours long. Please come and have a very enjoyable afternoon. The Austrian Club ensures safety and social distancing policies in compliance with Alberta Government Regulations.
