Vienna Boys’ Choir or Wiener Sängerknaben is a boys’ choir from Vienna [that’s kind of obvious, doesn’t it?]. Who knows where Vienna is? In German, its name is Wien [Germans pronounce it as [vi:n]. Does that mean it’s in Germany? No. Actually, it’s in Austria [or Österreich in German]. Sorry for being extra informative.
Anyway, the blue sailor-suited VBC has about 100 choristers, divided into four groups: Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, and Bruckner. If you know Mozart, then you can deduce that they are the names of composers. VBC always performed songs from them. Still, it’s wrong to think that they are restricted to the classical ones only. Pop songs are also involved in their performance.
The choristers are not just from Austria, but from all over the world. They are well-known throughout the world as the best of its genre, performing in front of 500,000 audiences every year. What do you expect from a group of musicians that has been established since 1924? How about their school? The school’s name is Palais Augarten. Isn’t Palais French for Palace? Isn’t palace a cool place for a school?
Guess what? They’re coming to KK this October! Could you believe it? Could you? I am ecstatic… but… here’s the sad part… how will I go to Universiti Malaysia Sabah at night? I’ve no transport! [Besides, it feels like I'm the only one who has heard about them in IPG Gaya!]
Ich möchte dorthin zu gehen!!!
