Join twenty-four of the world's most beautiful voices in one of the world's oldest musical traditions.

For nearly 500 years the Vienna Boys Choir has been an enduring symbol of Europe. The choir is one of the world’s most active musical ensembles and performs over 300 concerts a year. They provide the music for the Sunday Mass in Vienna's Imperial Chapel, - as they have done since 1498! - while also taking part in opera performances at the Vienna State Opera and touring internationally to some of the world's best concerts halls.

The choir returns in 2012 with a sublime programme of traditional and popular choral works. 


World Premiere!

For the first time, the choir will premiere a new work, Land of Sweeping Plains, by an Australian composer, with Elena Kats-Chernin's new setting of the iconic Australian text, My Country, by Dorothea Mackellar.

Watch the video and learn more about Elena Kats-Chernin, the iconic Australian text and the Vienna Boys Choir.
