No group of child musicians has won more renown than the incomparable Wiener Sangerknaben, founded by Emperor Maximilian I in 1498. Six centuries later, the famed Vienna Boys’ Choir continues to delight music-lovers across the globe with their purity of tone, distinctive charm and a diverse, crowd pleasing repertoire. Gifted musicians with voices of unforgettable beauty, they carry on the illustrious tradition as the world’s preeminent boy choir.
The Vienna Boys’ Choir repertoire includes everything from medieval to contemporary and experimental music. Motets and lieder for boys’ choir form the core of the touring repertoire, as do the choir’s own arrangements of quintessentially Viennese music, waltzes and polkas by Lehar, Lanner, and Strauss.
