Have been wanting to attend the Vienna Boys' choir concert for a long... time and finally found company to attend the most recent one here in Singapore. It was such a fantastic experience!
The choir on Saturday, 7 Nov 2009, consists of 20 boys. Loved the soloists; the most outstanding one was a Chinese. =) Maybe they had tried to include more Asians in this leg of their tour, especially so when the new album is entitled "Silk Road". Familiar songs like 高山青 and 弯弯的月亮 were sung to close perfection and earned strong applause from the appreciative crowd.
In the second half after the intermission, the choir managed to draw the attention of the audience by having 4 boys perform a short but cute Austrian dance in Austrian dressing (ie. Sound-of-music style). The conductor was able to get audience participation by having us clap along as accompaniment.
One word: Awesome! =)
