Indiana University of Pennsylvania is pleased to welcome the
world-renowned Vienna Boys Choir to campus as they perform a program of
medieval and contemporary music.
Founded by imperial order of Emperor Maximilian I in 1498, the Vienna
Boys Choir is a group of 100 choristers between the ages of 10 and 14
who are divided into four touring choirs. Each group gives around 300
performances annually for nearly half a million people across the globe.
Musicians like Heinrich Isaac, Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber, Johann Joseph
Fux, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Antonio Caldara, Antonio Salieri, and
Anton Bruckner worked with the choir. Composers Jacobus Gallus and Franz
Schubert were themselves choristers. Brothers Joseph and Michael Haydn,
members of the choir of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, frequently sang
with the imperial boys’ choir.
According to the (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier, “Their
tone is pristine, their dynamics perfectly rendered, but of course it is their
youth and pure soprano voices that make them unique.” And the Washington Post
praises the boys’ “totally disciplined voices tempered by a singular sense of
ease and consistency.”
