year's first tour takes the Choir, conducted by Manolo Cagnin, to South Korea. The boys will sing seven concerts in
six cities; the final two concerts will take place in Seoul's new Lotte Concert Hall.
In honour of "Tata" Mandela's 100th birthday, the Bochabela
String Orchestra and the Vienna Boys Choir present a spectacular programme of Western European and African music - featuring
the "Nelson Mass" by Joseph Haydn.
Now in its tenth season, the festival - which takes place in Lungau,
a region of Salzburg - welcomes 51 choirs from Hungary, Norway, Russia, and Austria - and the Vienna Boys Choir will sing
at the opening - suitably "fiery" songs.
