One of the most acclaimed musical ensembles in world history, The Vienna Boys' Choir comes to the Brooklyn Center for their famed Christmas in Vienna concert, performing traditional and contemporary holiday favorites. The choir traces its illustrious roots back to 1498, in the court of the Holy Roman Emperor. Until 1918, they sang exclusively for the imperial court, at mass, in private concerts and on state occasions. Today, the choristers -- ranging in age from 10 to 14 -- perform select dates for adoring audiences around the world, while still maintaining the tradition of the imperial musicians. These cherubic voices will sing merry carols like "Jingle Bells" and "O Holy Night," along with Austrian folk songs and classical works from the likes of Mozart, Vivaldi and Bach.
Running time is one hour, 45 minutes with one intermission.
