The Vienna Boys Choir, whose May-June Japan tour was canceled due to the spread of the novel coronavirus, will carry out a Japan tour from Tuesday (national holiday), September 22 to Monday, October 19 this year. For the autumn tour, the VBC’s Bruckner Choir will come to Japan led by Kapellmeister Manolo Cagnin, who is popular for his cheerful and lively character. Throughout Japan they will perform programs with the message “Together,” in the hope that we will have overcome this crisis in the autumn. Don’t miss the Vienna Boys Choir’s autumn 2020 tour!
