Vienna Boys Choir in Manila

It was with great excitement to many people when it was learned that the Vienna Boys Choir was to perform in Manila….although “the angelic performance” is scheduled only for one night at the Philippine International Convention Center.


Listening and watching the world famous choir may be considered the  best holiday treat in our music scene this November. 

Considered as one of the oldest choirs existing in the world best known for their boy sopranos and altos between the ages of ten and fourteen, the Vienna Boys Choir are selected mainly from Austria, but also
from many other nations around the world.

 “The Vienna Boys Choir Live In Manila” is a non-profit charity event of the Alumni Association of Xavier School, for the benefit of the Fr. Tritz ERDA Tech School and the health fund for retired teachers of
Xavier School.

According to my childhood friend, Toots Tolentino, “The Vienna Boys Choir had its last performance in Manila back in 2004. After twelve years, this comeback concert is the choir’s 2016 Asian Tour with sold-
out performances in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Jakarta, China, Taiwan and finally Manila as its final stop.

 “The boys are divided into four sub-groups or touring choirs, named after famous Austrian composers associated with the choir’s history, namely Bruckner, Haydn, Mozart and Schubert. 

 “For the 2016 Asian tour, the Bruckner choir will be carrying on the tradition established by the Vienna Boys Choir. The choirboys come from Vienna, Lower Austria, Burgenland, and Styria; from Canada,
China, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Russia, and one member from the Philippines.

 “The leader of the group Choirmaster   Manolo Cagnin feels it is especially important to communicate with the audience, “Music is a gift. As musicians, we have the obligation to share that gift with our
audience.” 

Cagnin finds working with the boys particularly rewarding, “They possess character and spirit. This is reflected in the way they make music. The children learn from me, and I learn from them.” The choir is
expected to perform 22 songs with a repertoire including classical compositions by Vivaldi, Schubert, Rossini and Strauss, as well as pop songs. All perfectly chosen to match the boys’ voices and
personalities. 

 “The Hail Mary the Queen Children’s Choir from Pasig will be the special guest performers for the concert.

 “The Vienna Boys Choir and the Vienna Philharmonic are two of Austria’s national treasures. The choir has enjoyed a history of over 500 years, with a well-established tradition in professional musical
education and vocal training. Known for its exceedingly high vocal standard, the choir has worked with musicians including Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Antonio Caldara, Antonio Salieri, Heinrich Isaac, Paul
Hofhaimer, Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber, Johann Joseph Fux, Christoph Willibald Gluck, and Anton Bruckner.

 “The group will be flown in by Philippine Airlines, the nation’s flag carrier as the official airline partner”. 

Toots Tolentino further added that “the newly opened Conrad Manila shall serve as the official residence of the group. According to Conrad Manila’s General Manager Harald Feurstein,  The Filipino audiences
will surely be delighted to experience the Choir’s world-class talent and bravura. Their magical renditions will surely make Christmas more joyful. It gives us so much pleasure to provide an inspired stay at
Conrad Manila to the Vienna Boys Choir at this time of their world performance tour. Personally, I couldn’t be happier to share the musical gift that the Vienna Boys Choir would bring to the equally musically-
passionate Filipino audiences.

 “On the diplomatic front, His Excellency Ambassador Dr. Josef Müllner of The Austrian Embassy in Manila told the organizers of the concert that “ the best of Austria will be coming to Manila on our 70th year
anniversary of Austria-Philippines relations, and the boys will be staying at the world-class Conrad Manila, whose General Manager happens to also be from Austria.”

 “THE VIENNA BOYS CHOIR LIVE IN MANILA” is presented by GMA 7, Conrad Manila and Mesco Power Tools in cooperation with Philippine Airlines, Coconut Brand Soy Sauce and The Austrian Embassy
Manila.

 “As a special treat, concertgoers can avail of special room rates with discounted tickets when you book a stay at Conrad Manila from 10 to 14 November 2016. Limited offer and subject to availability”. 

Other sponsors to this event  are the  Steinway Boutique Manila - the official piano sponsor, The Luxe Bus - the official transport provider, Oriental Tin Can, SYCWIN, Valspar, SBS Philippines Corporation,
Palais Coburg, SM Supermalls, BDO, and radio partners 98.7 DZFE and Crossover 105.1FM.
