The Vienna Boys Choir, held on March 29 under the auspices of the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (BMEIA) in Palais Coburg and Vienna, has turned to more than 500 years of history.They wanted, they say, to connect old and new.
The Vienna Boys Choir is an international choir with roots in Vienna. One of their advantages is the Strauss music band, written for extravagant balls. Every year, the choir’s boys focuses on another guest nation; now it was Japan, marking the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations between her and Austria.
For the first time, the Vienna Boys Choir held at Vienna’s fabled Palais Coburg Residenz. The magnificent building was erected on the remains of medieval Braunbastei, as residence of August of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and his wife Clementine d’Orléans. After a turbulent history, the palace was finally restored to its former glory; in 2003, it was turned into a luxury hotel with two gourmet restaurants.
In addition to the choir of Viennese boys, there were also exclusive Japanese “AHS Vocaloid” and the usual Midnight quadrille in the Palais Coburg’s foyer.Guests enjoy Japanese cuisine.
All collected revenues go to the Vienna Scholarship Fund.
