Vienna Boys Choir
Vienna Boys Choir –
Christmas in Vienna
Friday, November 22, 2019 8:00 PM
Boys have been singing at Vienna’s Imperial Chapel since 1296. Joseph Haydn, Michael Haydn and Franz Schubert were themselves choir boys. Today, there are 100 choristers between the ages of nine and fourteen, divided into four touring groups. The Choir’s repertoire includes everything from medieval to contemporary and experimental music. Motets and lieder for boys’ choirs form the core of the touring repertoire, as do the Choir’s own arrangements of quintessentially Viennese music like waltzes and polkas. This will be a delightful evening for all ages!
