HIB.art.chor

Chor

Under the direction of Maria Fürntratt, the singers of the HIB.art.chor, consisting of students of the HIB Graz-Liebenau, have been offered comprehensive vocal training since 1995. In numerous international performances from Norway to South Africa and Shanghai to San Francisco, the choir's repertoire ranges from Austrian choral tradition to contemporary music.

Masala Brass Kollektiv

Banda

The mobile big band, consisting of up to 25 musicians, makes stages, streets and public spaces their home. Their original compositions and self-arranged cover versions range from alternative rock to Balkan, klezmer, funk and jazz to reggae and are sure to get the audience dancing, even unamplified.

Miloš Milojević

Clarinet, Saxophon

Already at the age of 16, the Serbian-born musician toured the United States and Europe as a member of a folk music band. After studying the saxophone at the University of Arts in Graz, he conquered the Austrian music scene and can look back on numerous engagements.

Kristina Miller

Klavier

Kristina Miller was born into a family of musicians in Moscow as a piano prodigy. After only a short period of training she had her first performances with orchestra at the age of eight. The award-winning pianist’s foreign tours span several continents and her first CD, released in 2008, was broadcast several times on BBC radio.

On the trail of heroines

Once again we set off on our bikes, criss-crossing Graz, cycling over 15 km. We visit squares and streets named after heroines: doctor Oktavia Aigner-Rollett; resistance fighter Maria Cäsar; nurse Maria Stromberger. And the musical programme tells their stories.
