When Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I moved his court, 20 musicians and six singing boys to Vienna to establish his Chapel Imperial, he could not have foreseen that 500 years on, this would have become an institution of 100 boys, divided into four touring choirs.
Now in their fourth season, the choir's Friday Afternoon concerts have proved extremely popular. The four choirs take turns at showcasing their newest repertoire - a mix of medieval and modern, Classical, folk, and world music, sung a capella, with piano accompaniment, and with full orchestra. The choir's own concert hall, MuTh, possesses fine acoustics - the audience becomes part of the music.
There is no better way to get to know the Vienna Boys Choir, and there is no better way to begin your weekend.
