Covid crash: Vienna Boys Choir cancels next year’s toursNews
The choir has posted this notice on its website:
In view of the increasing corona numbers and the lack of vaccination options for children under the age of 12, the Vienna Boys’ Choir has canceled all tours abroad until 2022 – including the Christmas tours to the USA and Germany, which are so important for the economic survival of the choir. “In fact, this is causing us great distress again. We hope that we can at least partially offset the financial losses with creative ideas and help from the public sector. The City of Vienna signaled its support last year. In any case, the health of children, employees and our public comes first. As long as there is no vaccination for children under the age of 12, we cannot risk larger or even international trips. We must continue to fear – and hope, ”explains the President of the Boys’ Choir, Gerald Wirth….
Gerald Wirth is proud that, despite all the difficulties in the pandemic, we managed to produce a new CD last year; the album entitled “Together” will be released by Deutsche Grammophon in October.
