What could be better than one choir? Two choirs. For lovers of choral culture, the Wiener Sängerknaben, the Vienna Boys' Choir, is well-known; they have performed in Hungary on a number of occasions and given their audiences a memorable experience. This time, the legendary choir will be accompanied by another choir performing with them. Chorus Juventus, which is closely linked to the Wiener Sängerknaben, appears to be a real new discovery, as it was formed from former members thereof. The programme, which will be performed by the two choirs, matches the genre of the Christmas concert and the theme of the feast of love.

Wiener Sängerknaben was established as a group of the singing boys of the Viennese court. Its tradition goes back many centuries, as demonstrated vividly by the fact that Franz Schubert used to be a member of the choir. The fresh sound of the boy sopranos and boy altos gives their performances a unique charm. The tradition of Chorus Juventus is much more recent: the choir was formed from students of the secondary school attached to the Wiener Sängerknaben, it consists of boys and girls (but only boys come to Budapest) and its history dates back to just over a decade. The work of Chorus Juventus is supported by nine vocal teachers. Similar to the boys' choir, it has a very rich repertoire and performs at various concert venues, both alone and together with the boys' choir. At the Christmas concert at Müpa Budapest, the two choirs will perform a selection of the most beautiful shepherd songs and motets associated with the feast of the birth of Jesus, entitled Good Shepherds. The works on the programme include evergreen pieces such as Adeste fideles, Joy to the World and, naturally, Gruber's world-famous Christmas carol Silent Night.
