Horizons Concert Series brings
Vienna Boys Choir to campus

Internationally acclaimed musicians, including the Vienna Boys Choir, will appear during the Horizons Concert Series presented by the NAU School of Music.

The spring series opens on Jan. 24 with the Polish ensemble, ArtSax Duo, who will present music of their homeland.

One of the highlights of the season includes a rare performance by the Vienna Boys Choir on Feb. 28.

Other series offerings include a quintet of Persian classical musicians, named the Liän Ensemble, and Chinese pianist Tianshu Wang.

"The goal of the series is to broaden the listening experiences of NAU and local audiences by presenting historical, contemporary and non-Western performers who explore less-familiar styles and repertoires," said Todd Sullivan, director of the School of Music. "The Horizons' events, combined with our numerous faculty and students performances, provide a deep, rich musical offering."
