Music: Austrian boys' choir to perform in Hayfields

2010-09-22 00:00

AN Austrian boys’ choir with a thousand-year history will be performing in Pietermaritzburg tomorrow night as part of its South African tour.

St Florianer Sängerknaben, which was founded in 1071, was in its early years responsible for providing church music at the Convent of St Florian.

It travels the world to perform and has released numerous recordings and frequently appears on television.

Sacred music remains an integral part of its programme, but the repertoire also includes traditional Austrian music, folk music and songs like Waltzing Matilda, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Pie Jesu and a special version of Mozart’s The Magic Flute.

The choir will be performing at the Lutheran Church at 3 Bester Road, Hayfields, at 7 pm. A collection will be taken for travel costs.
