Christmas Concerts in the Minorite Church

The Christmas season is back to enchant you with classical concerts by the Vienna Chamber Symphony in the atmospheric Minorite Church.

To celebrate Christmas, two extraordinary concerts will take place on December 25th and 26th in this 13th-century church. The Christmas concerts of the Wiener Kammersymphonie Quintet, with the presence of the outstanding trumpeter Michael Bednarik, will be even more festive. Together, they will immerse you in a musical feast of works by great masters such as Vivaldi, Haydn, Bach, Handel, Corelli, and Telemann. Let the unique atmosphere of the church and the virtuosity of these musicians turn Christmas into unforgettable moments. Enjoy a Christmas experience full of harmony and musical joy!

The Vienna Chamber Symphony is an ensemble composed of highly talented musicians performing in Vienna. Members of this group usually perform as a string quintet. By doing so, the ensemble brings to its audiences a vast musical repertoire from classics to contemporary compositions bringing out the very best of the Ensemble members.  The WKS was founded in March 2006 in the “Year of Mozart” and made its outstandingly successful debut with a series of concerts in Spain that met with both public and critical acclaim describing the group as the best performers of a long season entirely dedicated to Mozart. Following this experience the WKS realised a series of projects dedicated to the musical contemporaries of Mozart. In 2008 they performed at the Umbria Music Festival with a “crossover project” fusing the pure Viennese classic style with that of hip-hop dance. This was followed by performances at the prestigious Vienna Musikverein and led to invitations to play at numerous international festivals including the Ankara Festival in April 2009 and many Italian theatres like the “Teatro N. Piccinni'' in Bari,  Ravello Festival, Alba Music Festival and Side Music Festival in Turkey. Subsequently, the Vienna Chamber Symphony has performed in South America (Brazil, Argentina and Colombia) and Istanbul (Süreyya Opera).

While enjoying the concert, you will not only be pampered acoustically, but also visually: there is a lot to discover in the magnificent interior of the Minorite Church in Vienna. The north side of the building is adorned with an impressive mosaic by Giacomo Raffaelli, a replica of the famous wall fresco Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, which has a total weight of approximately 20 tons.

The Minoriten Church is a Catholic church built in French Gothic style and is located at the center of Vienna’s historic inner city, in the first district and just a few minutes away from the Hofburg. The so-called Minorites were Franciscans who founded the Minorite Monastery in Vienna in 1224. The church building was completed in 1350, as one of the first Gothic churches in Eastern Austria. Ever since then, the Minorite Church is considered as one of the most beautiful churches in Vienna. 

Since 1784, the church has been owned by the Italian Congregation and has grown to become the cultural and social centre of the Italian Catholic community of Vienna. It is often referred to as the Italian National Church of Mary of the Snows.

The striking saddle roof of the church rises above the silhouette of Vienna's city centre and its "shot down“ tower is another striking characteristic of the building, dating back from the times of the Austro-Turkish wars. Since then, some massive alterations have taken place, the last major alteration being in the years around 1900, when the neo-Gothic annexes were built in which the Italian Congregation is housed. 

The Minorite Church in Vienna is one of the oldest and most artistically valuable churches in the city and definitely provides a unique venue for classical concerts – both acoustically and architecturally.
