vienna-boys-web

The world famous Vienna Boys choir has been singing at Vienna’s Imperial Chapel since 1926. Since that time, the choir has performed close to 1000 tours in over 100 different countries. There are currently 100 choristers between the ages of nine and fourteen, divided into four touring choirs. The choirs are named after famous Austrian composers associated with the choir’s history, Bruckner, Haydn, Mozart and Schubert. The choir still performs much of their music. They give around 300 concerts each year, attended by almost half a million spectators around the world.

The boys choir will perform in concert the music of some of the greatest musicians and composers of our times from Amadeus Mozart to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. The two-day concert will be in the Norðurljós Recital Hall at the Harpa concert hall and conference center in Reykjavík, Iceland.

    • Sorry that was a typo. I writing this at night when I was too tired. I’ve corrected it to 1926. Actually a boys choir with a different name was started in 1498. They were renamed again after that, but they didn’t actually get their present name until 1926.

  1. “… the greatest musicians and composers of our times from Amadeus Mozart to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.”
    That literally gave me an instant chill. Michael would be so proud!
    Also interesting, I lived only an hour for Reykjavík for 2 years.
