Description

The world-renowned Vienna Boys Choir, which has been singing at Vienna's Imperial Chapel for more than five centuries, performs on Wheelwright stage for the first time. The full choir, comprised of 100 boys between the ages of 9 and 14, is divided into four touring choirs named after Austrian composers Brucker, Haydn, Mozart and Schubert. The groups combined perform about 300 concerts per year before nearly 500,000 people.

In 1498, Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I moved his court to Vienna, thus founding the Hofmusikkapelle (Chapel Imperial) and the Vienna Boys Choir. Over the centuries, the Viennese Court attracted musicians such as Heinrich Isaac, Johann Joseph Fux, Christoph Willibald Gluck, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Anton Bruckner. Choirboys included Joseph Haydn, Michael Haydn and Franz Schubert.

Until 1918, the choir sang exclusively for the imperial court, and in 1924, it was reestablished as a private organization. Since that time, the group has sung more than 1,000 tours in 98 different countries. The choir's first U.S.A. tour took place in 1931, and its first world tour in 1934-35.
