To mark the 200th birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Prof. Erich Schwarzbauer founded the “Mozart Sängerknaben” in 1956. In just a short time the choir became a steady part in the Viennese and Austrian music life. Around the world the choir is recognized as a valued representative of Austria’s famed music culture.
In 1994 Peter Lang became the musical director of the ”Mozart Sängerknaben”. After founder Prof. Schwarzbauer’s death the choir was reorganized by a dedicated group of parents who worked with Peter Lang to found a new society under the temporary name “Amadeus Boys Choir Vienna.” Due to his efforts, the new founded choir was able to immediately take over the concerts of the former choir. Under this name, the choir had remarkable success, participating in many movies and TV-events all over the world. The Viennese Opera houses booked the choir to perform on many occasions, and the boys enjoyed the opportunity to travel internationally, as well as singing in premier venues at home.
In 2006, the choir celebrated the occasion of Mozart’s 250th birthday by renaming themselves “Mozart Boys Choir Vienna.”
