JOHN AND ALICE BUTLER HALL, HERITAGE CENTER
Dubuque Arts Council presents Vienna Boys Choir for one night only. With a rich history dating back more than 500 years, the Vienna Boys Choir has been associated with many of the world's greatest composers, including Mozart and Bruckner; Haydn and Schubert were themselves choristers when they were young. Centuries after their founding, the Choir maintains the tradition of Vienna's Imperial Chapel, still providing music for Sunday mass as they have done since 1498. Today, there are 100 choristers between the ages of ten and fourteen from 31 nations, divided into four touring groups. Altogether, the four choirs give as many as 300 concerts and performances each year, reaching half a million people throughout Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas. The show is made possible by a generous gift from the Falb Family Foundation, Mark and Cheryl Falb.
