Vienna Boys Choir to perform at WCUWritten by Admin
The Vienna Boys Choir, one of the most celebrated choirs of all time, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 6, at the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center at Western Carolina University.
The choir, founded in 1498, has a repertoire that includes medieval, contemporary and experimental music. Long a fixture in Austrian musical life, the choir performed only for imperial courts, in church and at private functions until 1918. Now, four choirs of 24 schoolboys between the ages 10 and 14 from Austria and neighboring European countries perform hundreds of times a year worldwide.
The performance is part of WCU’s seventh annual Galaxy of Stars Series.
Tickets for the Vienna Boys Choir are $20 for adults and seniors; $15 for WCU faculty and staff; $10 for groups of 20 or more; and $5 for children and students.
