"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 more than 520 years, we have trained boys 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, music lessons, and travel - and the Vienna Boys Choir pays for this. In addition, we maintain
the buildings on campus, the two baroque palaces, and the modern boarding school. Costs are prohibitive, and rising, which
is why we are asking for your help.
