An event bringing together Jewish and non-Jewish singers in the Austrian capital of Vienna, Europe's very first European Jewish Choir Festival is set to feature 400 vocalists from across the continent. Event planners hope to make the event into an annual affair, and anticipation runs rampant as the weekend long event draws near.

Hundreds of singers from across Europe have convened in Vienna for the first European Jewish Choir Festival.

The festival will culminate on May 12 in a gala concert titled “Shir LaShalom - A Song for Peace” at the Austria Center Vienna, where 400 vocalists from Jewish choirs from 16 European cities will present their repertoires.

The event, expected to draw some 1,500 spectators over the weekend, is sponsored by the European Jewish Parliament, the European Jewish Union, the Jewish Community of Vienna and the Austrian state.
