Kirchklang (Church Sound) Festival 2022

The high-quality music festival in the scenic and historically influenced cultural area in the heart of Austria is unique with its focus on the entire region and its intensive dialogue with it. Let yourself be seduced around the deepest lakes of our country and immerse yourself in music - in the most beautiful places of a region that, from early on attracted numerous composers, inspired them with its spectacular mountain panoramas and quiet lakes and to this day has lost none of its fascination.

Impressive Venues

We look forward to your concert visit and invite you this time to a musical listening pleasure with the following artists:

("I sing your name" for five female vocalists and organ).

"Graces and Voices" are internationally renowned for their lively and vital interpretation of the oldest and newest music, their director Antanina Kalechyts is a renowned conductor and professor of Gregorian chant at the Vienna University of Music.
