VIENNA BOYS CHOIR – CLASSICAL
All around the World, right here at MuTh
Choral music | Vienna Boys' Choir | Concert | Young people | Adults
The Vienna Boys Choir are one of the oldest boy choirs in the world – and certainly the most widely travelled. Founded in Vienna in 1498 as part of the court music establishment of Emperor Maximilian I, the choir has operated as a privately-run charity since 1924. They made their first concert tour in 1926. Since then, they have undertaken over 1,000 tours to 99 different countries, and have sung over 30,000 concerts in the process.
So what has made them so successful? Their concerts are like spectacular musical displays. A typical Vienna Boys Choir performance is a perfect blend of motets and art songs, world music, pop, and waltzes – a programme format which is known and loved by millions of audience members right around the world. A concert by the Vienna Boys Choir means two hours of musical enjoyment, two hours of escape from everyday life.
You can take a slice of their current repertoire home with you in their latest CD. Appropriately titled “Simply Classical”, this recording is a visiting card in song format.
