The SVBC WeekImagine listening to the purest, most beautiful voices on earth – those of the Vienna Boys' Choir (VBC). The VBC has been described as Vienna’s youngest ambassadors. The choir, with a history dating back some 500 years ago to the middle ages, is one of the world’s oldest surviving choirs. Famous composers such as Bruckner, Haydn, Mozart and Schubert have written for the choir. Many great musicians started their careers as members of the Boys’ Choir, amongst them the great conductors Hans Richter, Clemens Krauss and Lovro von Matacic. Many regard the Vienna Boys' Choir as Austria’s National Treasure.
