Vienna Boys Choir: A 500-year Tradition Under 5 Feet Tall in Bend, Oregon

Thursday, November 17 at 7:30pm the Vienna Boys Choir returns to the Tower Theatre to showcase their 500-year tradition of timeless music and angelic harmony.

Presented by the Tower Theatre Foundation, their spirited performance features everything from Austrian folk songs and traditional Christmas carols, to classical masterpieces and songs from across the globe.

With a history dating back to 1296, the Vienna Boys Choir has been associated with many of the world’s great composers, including Mozart, Bruckner and Salieri.  In addition, Franz Schubert, Joseph Haydn and Michael Haydn were themselves choristers.

However, with their broad repertoire, a Vienna Boys Choir performance is never just a concert for classical aficionados; it’s a musical event that appeals to all ages.

“I suspect that these two-dozen fresh-scrubbed youths could have charmed the capacity audience had they sung the cars-for-sale ads on Craigslist, but there was so much more to the concert than this,” wrote the Toronto Star. “These boys brought along some very impressive musicianship as well as entertainment value.”
