You can expect mentions of the flying pigs, 3-ways, Opening Day, Who Dey, East Side/West Side, politicians and other things that make Cincinnati unique.  The show starts in the Thompson Shelterhouse on November 6th and runs through January 9th.  Goetta get your tickets NOW!

All the Way from Vienna to Cincinnati...a Choir You Won't Believe!

by The Cincinnati Team

The Cincinnati Arts Association is bringing the Vienna Boys Choir to Cincinnati for one performance on Friday, November 12th, 8 PM at Music Hall.

The Choir is composed of approximately 100 boys between the ages of ten and fourteen.  They are mainly from Austria, though other countries are represented after extensive try outs.  The choir is built upon the tones of young boys, trebles and altos.
 
The choir is the modern-day descendant of the boys' choirs from the Viennese Court, dating back to the late Middle Ages.  It is a private, not-for-profit organization.

Each year approximately 100 choristers are chosen. They are divided into four touring choirs, named for Bruckner, Haydn, Mozart and Schubert, and perform about 300 concerts each year in front of almost 500,000 people. Each group tours for about ten weeks.  The remainder of the time they live at the boarding school.

Expect them to perform Austrian folk songs and waltzes, classical masterpieces, beloved pop songs, holiday favorites and medieval chants.
