The most famous Boys’ Choir in the world is coming to the Paramount!  Boys have been singing at Vienna’s Imperial Chapel since 1296. In 1498, Maximilian I moved his court to Vienna and instructed there were to be singing boys among his musicians. This marked the foundation of what is known today as the Vienna Boys Choir. Today, touring is part of the chorister’s education. Since 1926, the Vienna Boys Choir has undertaken 1000 tours in 97 different countries.  in that time, the boys have sung more than 27.000 concerts.

There are currently 100 choristers between the ages of nine and fourteen, divided into four touring choirs. They give over 300 concerts each year, attended by almost half a million spectators around the world.
