    Choral Workshop on Lake Garda / Italy - Mozart's Coronation Mass - Choral Workshop with Concert - International Oratorio Choir
    The International Oratorio Choir (Artistic Director Peter Laskowski) is a project choir, with which you may again perform the oratorios you know in an international lineup. The Coronation Mass in C major (KV 317) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was most probably composed for the Easter service of 1779 at the Salzburg Cathedral. Immediately after his death this church composition, which was probably Mozart’s most popular, became the preferred mass setting for services at imperial and royal coronations as well as at thanksgiving services. The festive symphonic elements and the clear separation of solo and choir voices are typical of this mass. Through its musical expressiveness it surpasses all other Salzburg masses.

    Who can take part in the project?
     - groups of at least 10 persons

    What are the terms and conditions for singers?
    - own choral scores (published by Breitkopf & Härtel) of Coronation Mass (W. A. Mozart)
    - some rough knowledge of the piece (e.g. having worked through it yourself or indeed having performed it on a previous occasion)
    - commitment to attend all the rehearsals throughout the project phase
