The current pandemic has badly affected the Vienna Boys Choir, both as a school and as artists. We are a private NGO which does not receive any government subsidies or public funding.

We normally rely on our performances - but while the choirs cannot perform, we have no income: so far, we have had to cancel over 500 performances, and more are certain to follow. 

Please help us, if you can. Your donation - however large or small - is much appreciated.

Thank you!

"A choir is a miniature society. Choir members strive to achieve a common goal - good music; they learn how to function as a team. People who sing as children benefit in every aspect of their lives."

- Professor Gerald Wirth, Artistic Director, The Vienna Boys Choir

For 523 years, we have been training youngsters in singing and seen to their education. Today, we continue a proud tradition: Every year, we educate 300 boys and girls of all backgrounds for a global society, their future.

Our education is open to all. Every child, every student in our schools costs between 30.000 and 36.000 Euros per annum. This includes tuition, boarding, and music lessons - and the Vienna Boys Choir pays for this. In addition, we maintain the buildings on campus, the baroque palace, the smaller baroque pavillion, and the modern boarding school. Costs are prohibitive, and rising, which is why we are asking for your help.
