Vienna Boys Choir

The angelic-voiced musicians of the Vienna Boys Choir celebrate the magic of the holiday season with a delightful program of Austrian folk songs, classical masterpieces, Christmas hymns, and holiday carols. For six centuries, these young cultural ambassadors have been adored the world over for their wide range of repertoire, purity of tone, and generosity of musical spirit

The Wiener Sängerknaben or Vienna Boys' Choir (sometimes translated Vienna Choir Boys) is the world's foremost children's choral group. It is also among the oldest of all musical organizations, having been founded pursuant to an Imperial decree of Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I on July 7, 1498; the Emperor wished boys' voices to be added to the choir of the Imperial Chapel, or
Hofkapelle. This established a tradition of having the boys sing in weekly Sunday masses in the Imperial Chapel of the Hofburg Palace in Vienna, a tradition that continues today.

 

Over the centuries, illustrious composers have written masterpieces for the Boys' Choir of the Imperial Chapel, including Mozart, Bruckner, Gluck, and Schubert. Many great musicians got their start as members of the Boys' Choir; among them were the great conductors Hans Richter, Clemens Krauss, and Lovro von Matacic. During the days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the choir became renowned for its secular performances as well, appearing in colorful Imperial-style military uniforms, each complete with a dagger. After World War I, wide popular and governmental disfavor of all things Imperial resulted in the dissolution of many long-standing institutions, including the Imperial Chapel Choir. However, Chaplain Joseph Schnitt remained in his position at the chapel and re-gathered the choir. Sparing no personal expense, he re-established a boarding school for the choristers. He replaced the imperial uniforms with a distinctive sailor-style uniform.

 

The Vienna Boys' Choir has the most stringent training and admittance policy in the world. Boys wishing to join must first gain entrance to a preparatory school where they receive a complete elementary education. Their instruction includes elements of musical theory, sight-singing, and the practice of singing, and instruction on at least one instrument; at the age of nine, they have to pass an examination based strictly on musical ability and vocal quality. There is no religious requirement. The teaching is purposely intensive in order that their education not be slighted due to the frequent touring. There are usually two choirs away on a tour at any given time, most frequently for three months. They are accompanied by their choirmaster, their tutor, and a nurse. Vienna Choir Boys have visited the United States well in excess of 50 times since 1932 and have traveled to all six inhabited continents. They are beloved the world over for their lively singing style and beautiful tone and have commissioned a number of new works, including Britten's The Golden Vanity.

Paul D'Angelo

Who is the comedian/writer/actor that The Los Angeles Times calls "…quite likely the funniest entertainer you've never heard of… yet"?

Paul Murphy spent ten and a half years as an Assistant District Attorney, supervising several of Massachusetts’s busiest courthouses, before building a reputation as a noted criminal-defense trial attorney. The unexpected twist to this story is that, for nine of those years, under the pseudonym of Paul D’Angelo, Paul was simultaneously becoming one of the nation’s top standup comedians.

While maintaining a full-time legal career, Paul rose from open-miker to headliner in less than six months and was selected to host his own weekly show at Boston’s two premier comedy clubs, Nick’s Comedy Stop and the Comedy Connection, for six and two years respectively. In 1989 Paul had the honor of being chosen as a national finalist representing Boston in the Johnny Walker Comedy Search and was named "Boston’s Best Comedian" in 1994 and 1995 by Boston Magazine… no insignificant feat in a city which has produced enormously successful comedy stars such as Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien, Paula Poundstone, Steven Wright, Anthony Clarke, Bobcat Goldthwait and Denis Leary. In 1997, Paul was honored to be invited as a feature performer at the Montreal ‘Just for Laughs’ International Comedy Festival. Paul was also a national finalist in the 1999 San Francisco International Comedy Competition; he was a national finalist representing Boston in the 'Laughs Across America' comedy search sponsored by the Las Vegas Comedy Festival; and he was also a national finalist, chosen from among thousands of contestants across the country, in the 2005 Sierra Mist / Improv 'Next Great Comic Search'. In addition, Paul is the writer/director/co-star of the original sitcom pilot 'A Fine Mess' which was featured at the prestigious New York International Independent Film Festival in 2002.
He is currently co-starring in Showtime’s  'Godfathers of Comedy' stand-up comedy special directed by Rocco Urbisci.

Paul’s has entertained many prominent corporate clients throughout the nation including Ford Motor Co., MITA Corp., Sony Music Corp., Hasbro / Milton-Bradley Corp., Hewlett-Packard Corp., Fidelity Investments, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Bike Athletic Corp., Nike-Bauer International and the Burger King Corporation. In addition, Paul has performed at casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, on Norwegian Cruise Lines, and at many colleges including Harvard University, Lehigh University, UNH, Boston University and U. Massachusetts.

As evidence of his adaptability, Paul has been selected to open up for over fifty internationally known recording artists as diversified as rhythm and blues greats Ray Charles, the Four Tops, the Temptations and Patti LaBelle; rock and roll legends Huey Lewis and the News, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Beach Boys, Chicago, the Righteous Bros., Aretha Franklin and Hall & Oates; country-western stars Lyle Lovett, Tanya Tucker and the Oakridge Boys; comedians George Carlin, Joan Rivers and Dennis Miller; and mature artists such as Tony Bennett, Englebert Humperdinck and Bobby Vinton, in various theater venues accommodating audiences of up to 5000+ people.

While living in Hollywood, CA, Paul appeared regularly at the Hollywood Improvisation and Laugh Factory and performed as a headliner at the Ice House and the Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, CA, arguably the country’s most discriminating non-showcase stand-up comedy venue that regularly features performers such as Jay Leno, Bill Maher, Gary Shandling, Ray Romano, Howie Mandel, Arsenio Hall and Richard Jeni.

Lenny Clarke

Veteran Boston stand-up comedian Lenny Clarke has an oddly calibrated act — his material and his perspective is very much in an old-school Don Rickles vein, but his attitude is very much that of a quick-witted young comic. This contrast comes wrapped in a conversational, deceptively genial delivery, with just brief moments of clowning. Clarke is also unpredictable in a very good way on stage — you don’t know where he’s going to go next. It’s never the same show twice. He’s a unique and funny performer … truly worth catching. — NYC Review

The Chieftains

Six-time Grammy Award winners, The Chieftains, have been highly recognized for reinventing traditional Irish music on a contemporary and International scale. Their ability to transcend musical boundaries to blend tradition with modern music has notably hailed them as one of the most renowned and revered musical groups to this day.

 

2012 marked the group’s 50th anniversary, and to celebrate this momentous occasion, The Chieftains once again invited friends from all musical styles to collaborate on their latest album, Voice of Ages. Featuring some of modern music’s fastest rising artists (Bon Iver, The Decemberists and Paolo Nutini among them), this album is proof that their music transcends not only stylistic and traditional boundaries, but generational as well.  

 

The Chieftains are never afraid to shock purists and push genre boundaries and the trappings of fame have not altered The Chieftains' love of, and loyalty to, their roots however- they are as comfortable playing spontaneous Irish sessions as they are headlining a concert at Carnegie Hall. After more than fifty years of making some of the most beautiful music in the world, The Chieftains' music remains as fresh and relevant as when they first began.

The Capitol Steps

The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. The group was born in December, 1981 when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. Their first idea was to stage a nativity play, but in the whole Congress they couldn't find three wise men or a virgin. So, they decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and they created song parodies & skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor.

 

In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ("Don't quit your day job!"), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.

 

Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 30 albums, including their latest, Mock the Vote. They've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.

The Branford Marsalis Quartet with Kurt Elling

It is no secret that the Branford Marsalis Quartet can be as freewheeling off the bandstand as in performance. Saxophonist Marsalis, pianist Joey Calderazzo, bassist Eric Revis and drummer Justin Faulkner are each bold personalities with strong opinions, equally intense in both musical and verbal exchanges. “The band talks about all kinds of things, many of which are unprintable,” Marsalis admits. “But we have serious musical debates as well.” One of these conversations led to Upward Spiral, the new album with special guest Kurt Elling that Marsalis Music is releasing via OKeh Records on June 10, 2016.

“One topic we got into was picking the best singer to work with our band,” Marsalis recalls. “My candidate was Kurt Elling, because he has the most flexible voice around, is always in tune and is a true jazz musician. When I met Kurt two years ago at a Thelonious Monk Institute competition, we had a conversation at the bar about doing a record together.”

“I had bumped into Branford on the road a handful of times, and we always had significant conversations,” Elling adds. “So when he mentioned making a record, I said ‘any time.’” What has emerged, after an intense week of performance and recording in New Orleans, is a collection that blends Songbook staples, jazz standards, and standards-to-be from a diverse array of composers.
