Things to do in Vienna

One of the oldest boys' choirs in the world, the Vienna Boys’ Choir has been an enduring symbol of Austria for more than 500 years. A foundation charter issued by Emperor Maximilian I in 1498 called the first dozen boys to the imperial court as members of the newly formed court music band.  Ever since, the Vienna Boys' Choir has been a fixture in Austrian musical life. The choir has produced numerous highly respected musicians, among them Joseph Haydn and Franz Schubert. Today, the 100 or so boys range between  the ages of 10 and 14 years and give about 300 concerts each year, performing  in front of about 500,000 spectators around the world.

They not only follow a busy schedule around the world, but also invent and re-invent programs in their home base in Vienna. “MuTh,” the concert hall of the Vienna Boys' Choir, opened in December 2012 in Vienna's second district, has become the official music center inside the Augarten - the oldest Baroque gardens in Vienna - offering seating for about 400 guests. In the “MuTh,” the Vienna Boys' Choir showcases a program ranging from classical to world music and from pop to children's operas.
