Ex­tra­or­di­nary Melodies from the Blue Danube – Vi­enna Boys Choir Con­cert

The Vi­enna Boys Choir, with more than 500 years of his­tory, has been rec­og­nized as the fore­most all-male choral group in the world. With the Vi­enna Phil­har­monic Orches­tra, they were called the two great na­tional trea­sures of Aus­tria. Since the 14th cen­tury, the choir has sung in weekly Sun­day masses at the Im­pe­rial Chapel of the Hof­burg Palace in Vi­enna, a tra­di­tion that con­tin­ues to­day. Over the cen­turies, the Vi­en­nese Court has at­tracted mu­si­cians like Mozart, Haydn and Schu­bert, they them­selves choir boys. In Vi­enna, it is con­sid­ered the proud­est child­hood ex­pe­ri­ence for a boy to be­come a mem­ber of the Boys Choir. The Vi­enna Boys Choir is char­ac­ter­ized by clas­si­cal mu­sic works, es­pe­cially Euro­pean. The cho­rus reper­toire in­cludes serene church mu­sic, ro­man­tic and el­e­gant songs, melo­di­ous coun­try bal­lads, as well as the Strauss fam­ily’s most pop­u­lar waltzes and op­eras. Oliver Stech was ap­pointed Kapellmeis­ter (choir­mas­ter) of the Vi­enna Boys Choir in Jan­uary of 2011. Stech is re­spon­si­ble for the con­cert and tour reper­toire; he con­ducts choir and solo re­hearsals and pre­pares the boys for ser­vice at Vi­enna’s Im­pe­rial Chapel. In ad­di­tion, he trains boys for pro­duc­tions at the Vi­enna State Opera and at the Vi­enna Volk­soper. Oliver Stech was born in Waid­hofen/Ybbs in Lower Aus­tria. He had piano and singing lessons as a child. He went on to study ro­mance lan­guages at the Uni­ver­sity of Vi­enna and voice and mu­sic ed­u­ca­tion at the Uni­ver­sity of Mu­sic, fo­cus­ing on choral and en­sem­ble con­duct­ing. In ad­di­tion to his stud­ies with Alois Glass­ner and Jo­hannes Hiemets­berger, he took cour­ses in con­duct­ing with Robert Sund and Jing Ling Tam.
