The Vienna Cathedral Choir is made up of ambitious amateur singers. The choir focuses on liturgical compositions of Viennese Classicism and Romanticism. Important works of oratorio literature are performed at regular cathedral concerts.

The weekly rehearsal with the cathedral’s Director of Music, Markus Landerer, takes place on Fridays from 7.00 - 9.30 p.m. in the Curhaus at Stephansplatz 3.
