Dubbed by The New York Times as “bright, light voices through the centuries,” the Vienna Boys Choirs perform each year in front of almost half a million people. With a repertoire including everything from medieval to contemporary and experimental music, there’s something for everyone to enjoy!
No group of child musicians has won more renown than the incomparable Wiener Sangerknaben, founded by Emperor Maximilian I in 1498. Six centuries later, the famed Vienna Boys Choir continue to delight music-lovers across the globe with their purity of tone, distinctive charm and a diverse, crowd pleasing repertoire that encompasses Austrian folk songs and waltzes, classical masterpieces, beloved pop songs, holiday favorites and medieval chants. Gifted musicians with voices of unforgettable beauty, they carry on the illustrious tradition as the world’s preeminent boys choir. This world-class ensemble gives 80 concerts a year in North America to Sold Out and near capacity audiences. Their film Silk Road: Songs Along the Road and Time, from director Curt Faudon, recently aired on select public television stations nationwide.
