The Vienna Boys Choir is making its debut appearance at the Lied Center. The 25-member touring choir performs around 300 concerts annually in front of almost half a million people. The singers visit nearly all European countries and are frequent guests in Asia, Australia and the Americas.

Boys began singing in the court of the Holy Roman Emperor in the early 15th century. In 1498, Emperor Maximilian I moved his court and musicians to Vienna. Historians have settled on this date as the foundation date of the Vienna Hofmusikkapelle and, consequently, the Vienna Boys Choir. Until 1918, the choir sang exclusively for the imperial court, masses, private concerts, functions and state occasions.
