Coronavirus - Current Cancellations

We regret that we have had to cancel our planned journeys to the Netherlands, to Belgium, and to Denmark.
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the Austrian Government has announced major restrictions of public life until 13 April. Restrictions apply to universities and schools, to public events, and obviously to travel. We are sorry for the cancellations, and sincerely hope to be able to hold the concerts at a later date.

News will be published on this site.

Coronavirus: Vienna Boys Choir affected

Following the Regulations given out by the Austrian Government on 10 March 2020, the Vienna Boys Choir have had to cancel their upcoming tours of the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, and Hungary, as well as all appearances in Austria until 3 April 2020. Services in the Imperial Chapel have been suspended. These are tough measures for the Choir, a non-profit organisation which relies on the income from concerts. 

The Choir's president, Gerald Wirth, remarks, "The crisis affects everyone. For us as an educational institution and as artists, it is paramount to protect the health and safety of the children in our care, of our staff, and of course our audience. At the same time, we remain optimistic about the measures taken. And music can help; it is an essential part of life."

The School's headmaster, Hans-Christian Granaas confirms, "We are monitoring the situation, and will follow the recommendations given by the health authorities. If possible, we are hoping to be able to hold the concerts at a later date."

Further information will be posted on this site as it becomes available.
