The Vienna Boys’ Choir is one of the best known boys’ choirs in the world. It is made up of a choir of trebles and altos and is based in Vienna. Though the boys are mainly selected from Austria, there are other boys that comes from other countries in the choir group. There are approximately 100 choristers between the ages of ten and fourteen. This group is divided into four smaller groups and each of the group is named after famous Austrian composers that were associated with the choir’s history. The four are Bruckner, Haydn, Mozart and Schubert.
It is hoped that the choir can create an environment where the boys can fully develop and realise their personal and musical potential. The experiences that a boy has while being a member of The Vienna Boys’ Choir stays with him for life, and the Choir aims to make it as diverse and interesting as possible.
