Vi­enna boys’ In­dige­nous ties

Travel Daily - - News -

THE Aus­trian National Tourist Of­fice (ANTO) helped cre­ate a spec­tac­u­lar mar­riage of cul­tures at the Syd­ney Opera House on Tue when the cel­e­brated Vi­enna Boys Choir united with Aus­tralia’s Gond­wana In­dige­nous Chil­dren’s Choir for a sell-out per­for­mance.

The com­bined voices were also joined by the Syd­ney Chil­dren’s Choir in an ex­change that fol­lowed a tour of Aus­tria by Gond­wana singers in May.

The chil­dren from Vi­enna and Gond­wana have now flown to Queens­land for a per­for­mance in Cairns and an op­por­tu­nity to spend time on coun­try with In­dige­nous com­mu­ni­ties.

Pic­tured are the Vi­enna Boys Choir pres­i­dent and artis­tic direc­tor Prof Ger­ald Wirth, Aus­trian Con­sul Gen­eral Karl Hartleb, ANTO Aus/NZ direc­tor Astrid Mul­hol­land-Licht, past choir host Thomas Wenkhard and Vi­enna Tourism Board Aust/ Canada market man­ager Elke Bach­ner, with mem­bers of the Vi­enna Boys Choir.
