Nov. 1, 2006 -- The Fowler Center at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro will present the Vienna Choir Boys in concert on Sunday, Nov. 12, at 3 p.m.
Together the four choirs give about 300 concerts and performances each year in front of almost half a million people, visiting virtually all European countries, and they are frequent guests in Asia, Australia and the Americas.
The concert at ASU will feature sacred music from Europe, including pieces by Mozart and Mendelssohn and sacred music from around the world, including pieces from North and South America. Also on the program will be Austrian and International folk songs and two light polkas by Johann Strauss, Jr.
The choir’s repertoire includes everything from medieval to contemporary and experimental music, and they have even recorded a pop CD, with songs by Celine Dion, Madonna and Robbie Williams. The choir has contributed to a number of film soundtracks: "Primal Fear," "The 13th Floor," "Dokuritsu shonen-gasshoudan," the animated "Doraemon" and "L.I.E."
This presentation is one of the Riceland Distinguished Performances for 2006-07.
