Waking by his father's hand on long strolls through the native forest of Weinviertel in Lower-Austria Thomas Weinhappel experienced for the first time what nature meant to him.Waking by his father's hand on long strolls through the native forest of Weinviertel in Lower-Austria Thomas Weinhappel experienced for the first time what nature meant to him.
On many journeys with the Vienna Boys' Choir (Wiener Sängerknaben) he learned more about it’s diversity. He didn`t only stay with fascination for surfaces’ beauty, he wanted to get to the buttom of it, literally. That's why he started deep-sea diving. In this hobby he became aware of the ease of affinity between his great passion music and the fluxional element. In one dimension and the other you feel pervaded, streaming agravic und boom.

All the more so since nature had blessed him with a voice that already keeps a profile at many honourable opera houses - he wanted to deploy it with respect to her to reimburse a share of the wonderful gift.
On his duty as  Ambassador of the Coral Reefs of our Oceans, he lobbies for their protection and preservation as often as he can. So the production of the "REEFCALENDAR 2017" came right on cue.


»As defined by Francis of Assisi, »As defined by Francis of Assisi, in his famous lines "Sonnengesang" -taking about "Brother Sun" and "Sister Moon" - we should realize the sea as our common ancestor, and protect it wherever it's possible, to preserve it for our children and their descendants.«

Thomas Weinhappel, 10.10.2016, Ta Nea, Athens

»On my duty as ambassador of Reefcalendar I'm delighted that now - just before the Reefcalender 2017 will be published in December 2016 - we have been able to gain other artists, medias and the Austrian minister of evironmental protection to support our concerns.«
