There are not many choir ensembles as renowned and acclaimed as the Vienna Boys Choir.
Legendary composers such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Antonio Salieri and Anton Bruckner have worked with this choir.
Its past members include Franz Schubert, Jacobus Gallus and Hans Richter.
These boys are divided into four touring choirs, named after the Austrian composers Bruckner, Haydn, Mozart and Schubert.
The choir was established through a letter from Emperor Maximilian I of Habsburg on July 7, 1498, which instructed court officials to employ a singing master, two basses and six boys.
This established the Vienna Boys Choir.
Six centuries after its founding, the famed choir continues to amaze and entertain music lovers around the world with its range of tone from soprano to alto, distinct charm and diverse repertoire.
