Howard Center Presents...Vienna Boys Choir
Sun, February 12, 2017 @ 07:00 pm - 09:00 pm
World-renowned Vienna Boys Choir will be performing in concert on Sunday, Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. in the Howard Performing Arts Center on the campus of Andrews University.
The Vienna Boys Choir dates back as early as 1498, more than half a millennium ago and is comprised entirely of boys aged 10 to 14.
Famed musicians such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Antonio Caldara and Antonio Salieri among others have worked with the choir.
Joseph Haydn and his brother, Michael Haydn, were members of the choir of St. Stephen’s Cathedral and frequently sang with the boys’ choir.
Today, there are 100 choristers from 31 nations between the ages of 10 and 14, divided into four touring choirs. Between them the four choirs give around 300 concerts and performances each year in front of almost half a million people. Each group spends nine to 11 weeks of the school year on tour. They visit virtually all European countries, and are frequent guests in Asia, Australia, and the Americas.
The choir’s extensive repertoire includes everything from medieval to contemporary and experimental music.
A private, non-for-profit organization, the Vienna Boys Choir finances itself largely through concerts, recordings and royalties.
