The Vienna Boys' Choir is a private, not-for-profit organization. 110 former choristers form the General Assembly; they elect the Board of Trustees. The Board oversees the day-to-day running of the Choir. The Choir consists of current and former choristers, choir staff, teachers and, in a broader sense, also the choristers' parents, without whom the Choir would not exist. For those of you who haven't heard this before, the Vienna Boys' Choir is divided into four sub-groups or touring choirs. The choirs are of equal standing; the tours, appearances in Vienna and recording projects are shared among them. Each choir has a choirmaster, and two tutors or prefects who travel with the boys. The choirs are named after famous Austrian composers associated with the choir's history, Bruckner, Haydn, Mozart and Schubert. The choir still performs much of their music. The Vienna Boys' Choir strives to create an environment in which boys can fully develop and realize their personal and musical potential. Choristers learn to express themselves on a professional level in many different styles of music, and they are provided with the tools to set them on the road to - should they wish it - a professional career in music.
The experiences a boy has while a member of the Choir, in particular the concerts and the touring, stay with him for life; the Choir aims to make these experiences as diverse as possible.We aim to teach the boys to become well-rounded, independent, generous and open human beings. The education is available to all talented boys, regardless of their backgrounds.
