The Vienna Boys Choir at South Whidbey High School

I don't expect to be traveling to Vienna anytime in the near future. I truly never expected to ever see the Vienna Boys Choir. So you can imagine how happy I was when Mary asked me to come with her and Randy to see them perform here on the island. So last night we journeyed to the South Whidbey High School to see The Vienna Boys Choir. Dan watched the shop and had a terrific night of music here too.

Randy and I were talking about seeing this Walt Disney program in the 60's about the Vienna Boys Choir. It is called "Almost Angels". It was a truly captivating show (must have been since I was younger than 11 years of age when I saw it and thirty some odd years later I still remember it.)

Anyway it was fun to see boys perform the caliber of music these boys performed. WOW!!It was even more enjoyable to see them start giggling in the second half of the performance and recognize that these performers were boys!! I love seeing kids be kids!

The voices of the young men was astonishing. There were three sopranos that really had absolutely incredible voices. I know three women in our group who would have given anything to have their range and tone!
