No group of child musicians has won more renown than the incomparable Wiener Sängerknaben, 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 chant. Gifted musicians with voices of unforgettable beauty, they carry on the Vienna Boys Choir’s illustrious tradition as the world’s preeminent boy choir.
The Vienna Boys Choir is a world-class ensemble that is a guaranteed draw. The Choir gives 80 concerts a year in North America, over half at near capacity and quite often SOLD OUT.
The Vienna Boys Choir presents timeless music with a universal popular appeal. With its broad repertoire, a Vienna Boys Choir performance is never just a concert for classical aficionados or subscription regulars; it’s a musical event that will draw in music lovers from all walks of life.
This is an attraction that appeals to all ages. Parents and grandparents afraid to take their kids to see a "grown-up" Beethoven symphony will bring them to the Vienna Boys Choir as ideal family fare. What better way for families to bond and children to discover new music?
