The Vienna boy’s Choir was first established by Emperor Maximilian I of Hapsburg in 1498. They were created to provide musical accompaniment during church mass. The Vienna Boy’s Choir has been amazing audiences with their voices ever since. Throughout their history, the choir has worked with some of the world’s most famous composers, including Mozart, Schubert and Bruckner. The full choir has a hundred members between 10 and 14 years old. There’s a steady demand for the group, so it’s divided into four touring choirs.
