Vienna Boys’ Choir on steps

Vienna Boys' Choir

They thrill the concert-going public around the world, are described as Vienna’s youngest ambassadors, and make music with world class musicians: the Vienna Boys' Choir. In Vienna, they regularly appear in their own new concert hall "MuTh" and in the Hofburg Chapel.

In Vienna, it is often possible to hear the Vienna Boy's Choir: regularly as part of the Vienna Hofmusikkapelle at the Holy Mass in the Hofburg Chapel on Sundays (September to June) and in the MuTh - that's their new concert hall in the Augarten, which opened on 9 December 2012. The name MuTh is an abbreviation of "Music and Theater" and its stage is home to daring music and theater productions. - A stage that offers a superb view for the 400 audience members and gives the actors almost as much space as the Vienna State Opera.

The MuTh is located right next to the Augartenpalais, where the Vienna Boys learn, live and sing. The new music center is a powerful cultural stimulus in the Augarten. The MuTh builds bridges: Between music and theater, tradition and experiment, great artists and - above all - the next generation.

MuTh: Children's Operas and Friday Afternoons

The Vienna Boys' Choir, whose members range in age from kindergarten to high school (including a few girls!), presents itself in the MuTh with a classical program ranging from world music and pop to children's opera. At the Friday Afternoons, they present their latest repertoire.

Each season, the Boys' Choir performs a third of the MuTh program. This leaves lots of room for welcome guests: Musical educational establishments, festivals (ImPulsTanz) and cooperation partners such as the Volksoper, Dschungel Wien and the Vienna Children's Theater perform at the MuTh. 

100 voices in the Augarten

The 100 or so Vienna Boys are between 10 and 14 years of age and organized into four concert choirs. The give about 300 concerts each year - in front of almost half a million spectators around the world.

The beginnings of the choir can be traced to 1498, when Emperor Maximilian I. laid the foundation stone for the Viennese Court Music Orchestra - of which the Boys' Choir was a part.
