Once again, Austria’s intangible cultural heritage has grown: the Vienna Boys Choir’s education and tradition of choral singing has been added to the national UNESCO list of historically important customs.

Viennese tradition from the 14th century 

The Vienna Boys’ Choir is an institution whose history dates back more than 500 years. In 1498, Emperor Maximilian I, moved his court as well as his court music from various residences to Vienna, thus, laying the foundation for the Viennese Court Music Chapel and finally for the Vienna Boys’ Choir. Nowadays, there are 100 active choirboys, divided into four equal choirs and named after famous composers, who are closely connected with the history of the Vienna Boys’ Choir: Bruckner, Haydn, Mozart and Schubert. 

Each year, the Boys’ Choir complete almost 300 performances in front of more than half a million of people. From Europe to Asia, Australia, Central- and South America to the US and Canada – touring all over the world is now a vital part of the Vienna Boys’ Choir.
