The Hugo Wolf Chamber Choir was founded on the 150th anniversary of the birth of Austrian composer of Slovene origin Hugo Wolf in 2010, as part of the Cultural society of German speaking women “Mostovi”, an institution promoting the harmony between Slovenian and German culture in Maribor. Maribor is the second largest city in Slovenia, close to the Austrian border, where Hugo Wolf attended secondary school, learned to play the violin and also composed his first pieces.

The choir consists of 20 experienced singers and students of solo-singing, led by artistic director - baritone and vocal coach Aleš Marčič, and take on the complex compositions by Hugo Wolf and other classical composers, both older and contemporary. Special attention is given to reviving the memory of forgotten composers, who were in one way or another connected with the city Maribor (Lannoy, Stolz, R. Wagner, Lechner, Hochreiter, etc.).

In 2012 the choir recorded its first CD entitled “Vrnitev/Einkehr”.
