Aware of the need to give new impetus to the contemporary creation of vocal music and with the desire to let the rich repertoire of medieval, Renaissance and early Baroque music blossom again, the ensemble Cantando Admont was formed by dedicated singers under the direction of Cordula Bürgi. With enthusiasm and great commitment, the ensemble aims to revive the richness of the historical vocal heritage in contemporary creation.

Cantando Admont performs at renowned festivals and promoters such as Salzburger and Bayreuther Festspiele, Acht Brücken Festival Cologne, Wien Modern, Steirischer Herbst, Munich Biennale, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Musikverein Vienna, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Teatro Colón Buenos Aires, Konzerthaus Dortmund, Onassis Center Athens. From 2023/24 Cantando Admont plans to realize its own concert series also in Vienna. In addition, Cantando Admont is invited to perform at the Wiener Festwochen for the first time in 2023. In 2025, an opera production is planned at the Zurich Opera House.

Regular collaboration with composers such as Beat Furrer, Youghi Pagh-Paan, Klaus Lang, Elisabeth Harnik, Peter Ablinger, Feliz Anne Reyes Macahis, Laure M. Hiendl, Marco Momi and others, as well as ensembles such as Klangforum Wien, Ensemble Kontrapunkte, Ensemble ARXIS, Ensemble dissonArt, Ensemble Nikel, Ictus Enemble, etc. is an essential part of Cantando Admont.

For the impuls Festival Cantando Admont, who is also offering a vocal ensemble program at the impuls Academy this year, is presenting pieces by impuls Academy tutors as well as Ulysses Network composer Mauro Hertig, interweaving 21st century literature with Tomás Luis de Victoria´s Officium Defunctorum from the beginning of the 17th century.
