Christian KolonovitsBorn: February 25th, 1952, Rechnitz (Austria)
On four occasions, Christian Kolonovits participated in the Eurovision Song Contest for Austria – in various capacities: musician, composer, arranger, and conductor. As a twenty-year-old, Christian Kolonovits performed on the Eurovision stage as the pianist of the group Milestones, which won a fifth place with their sophisticated song ‘Falter im Wind’. In 1976, he wrote the original arrangement to ‘My little world’, with which Waterloo & Robinson represented the Alpine nation in the contest in The Hague. One year later, in 1977, Kolonovits helped the group Schmetterlinge by arranging and conducting their song ‘Boom boom boomerang’, which finished 17th. In 1993, he participated in the contest as the composer and conductor of ‘Maria Magdalena’, an up-beat pop song which was interpreted by Tony Wegas, who finished 14th with it.
In due course, a more extensive biography of Christian Kolonovits will be published on this website
