Vienna Boys Choir
Christmas in Vienna

7:30 pm Tuesday, December 1, 2015

“Time may march on, but the Vienna Boys Choir remains a rock-solid institution,” writes a reviewer for the Green Bay Press Gazette. No group of child musicians has won more renown. Founded by Emperor Maximilian I in 1498, the incomparable ensemble delights music lovers across the planet with its purity of tone, distinctive charm, and crowd-pleasing repertoire. Dressed in their trademark sailor suits and shiny black shoes, the 10- to 14-year-olds perform Austrian folk songs, classical masterpieces, beloved pop songs, and holiday favorites. “I suspect that these two-dozen fresh-scrubbed youths could have charmed the capacity audience had they sung the cars-for-sale ads on Craigslist,” writes a Toronto Star critic. “There’s something irresistible about the rosy cheeks and pure, unbroken treble voices. But there was so much more to the concert than this. These boys … brought along some very impressive musicianship as well as entertainment value.”
