Celebrate the new year with the Vienna Boys Choir and WFMT: Chicago

Bookmark and Share

WFMT: Chicago's last edition of 'Introductions' for 2017 is a musical smorgasbord which you can stream here. In addition to featuring young Chicago-based ensembles, we'll hear from some recent visitors to WFMT. In November 2017, the world-renowned Vienna Boys' Choir performed some traditional carols in our Levin Performance Studio. We'll also revisit a recording from 2015 of the von Trapp singers in a new arrangement of "Edelweiss" from The Sound of Music. After some Austrian-inspired music, we head to Prague to hear the music of Czech composer Antonín Dvořák. The Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra performed there this past summer as a part of their tour to Central Europe.
