About the event

The Vienna Boys Choir is one of the world’s oldest choirs composed of purely young boys. It has been a

known symbol of Austria for almost 500 years.

Today there are 100 choristers from 30 different nations between the ages of ten and fourteen, divided into four

touring choirs. Between them, the four choirs give around 300 concerts and performances each year in front of

almost half a million people. They visit virtually all European countries, and they are frequent guests in Asia,

Australia and the Americas. Together with members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and the men of the

Vienna State Opera Chorus, the Vienna Boys’ Choir maintains the tradition of the imperial musicians: as

Hofmusikkapelle (Chapel Imperial) they provide the music for the Sunday Mass in Vienna’s Imperial Chapel,

as they have done since 1498. In 2012, the choir participated for the fifth time in the New Year’s Concert of the

Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Mariss Jansons.
