The Vienna Boys Choir Charity Concert in Bangkok November 4th, 2013

Reading Time: 1 minute

Christian University of Thailand together with Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital and Embassy of Austria organized a charity concert which will be performed by Vienna Boys Choir on November 4th, 2013 at Rajapattayalai Auditorium Siriraj Hospital.

The Vienna Boys’ Choir (also The Vienna Choir Boys, German: Wiener Sängerknaben) is a choir of trebles and altos based in Vienna. It is one of the best known boys’ choirs in the world. The boys are selected mainly from Austria, but also from many other countries.

When emperor Maximilian I decreed in 1498 that there were to be six boys among his court musicians, he had unwittingly laid the foundations for the Wiener Sängerknaben (Vienna Boys´ Choir).
Today, more than 500 years later, the Wiener Sängerknaben continue to sing Sunday services in the imperial chapel.

The choir is a private, not-for-profit organization. There are approximately 100 choristers between the ages of ten and fourteen. The boys are divided into four touring choirs, named for Bruckner, Haydn, Mozart and Schubert, which perform about 300 concerts each year before almost 500,000 people. Each group tours for about nine to eleven weeks.

Ticket price is 10,000THB income will be donated to Siriraj Foundation. Donors can also make a donation for Siriraj Foundation by dialling to Christian University of Thailand 034-229-480-7 ext. 1201,1202,1212,1218 or Information and Promoting Center Siriraj Hospital Tel.02-419-7646-48
