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.

Rennie Harris Puremovement (RHPM) is based on the belief that hip-hop dance is a important original expression of a generation, with the unique ability to convey themes that extend beyond racial, religious and economic boundaries. RHPM deconstructs the popular perception about hip-hop by encompassing rich and diverse African-American dance traditions while simultaneously presenting the voice of a new generation.

Rennie Harris is the recipient of a Pew Fellowship in the Arts for Choreography grant and has received awards from all of the major cultural councils in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania. Harris was awarded the Bessie Award and was recognized as the Pennsylvania Artist of the Year by Governor Rendell in 2007.

Indian Ink Theatre Company returns with Kiss the Fish, Inspired by the true story of a luxury resort abandoned by humans and entirely occupied by monkeys. This production of a simple South Asian island with an array of musical instruments, puppetry, an ensemble of actors and Balinese comic masks.

The story follows Sidu, a young man eager to leave his tropical paradise home until a new eco-resort promises life-changing riches, leaving every village miser, entrepreneur, bride and priest jostling for their slice of the dream. In a turn of events, the island finds its fate in the hands of Sidu—who everyone agrees is a very odd fish.
