Bing Crosby (died 1977) and Frank Sinatra (died 1998) were the masters when it came to interpreting Christmas carols in a grand and atmospheric swing style. In Austria this is the singer, cabaret artist and entertainer Victor Gernot (57). He has been on stage for 30 years now and continues to delight the audience with his Christmas concerts.
Also this year “Viktor Gernot & His Best Friends – The Christmas Show 2022” is on the program (on December 11th in Vienna, December 12th in Graz and December 13th in Linz).
“I didn’t have a Christmas concert career plan. I am an absolute believer. As a child I was enchanted by the film ‘Holiday Inn’ (German title: ‘Musik, Musik’) with Bing Crosby, where ‘White Christmas’ was sung for the first time. And I was really spellbound and enchanted by the American Christmas carols,” Viktor Gernot told KURIER.
