HARRISON, N.Y. -- Purchase College will host a holiday concert from the Vienna Boys' Choir on Saturday, Dec. 7.

The Vienna Boys' Choir will sing several holiday selections during the "Christmas In Vienna" performance at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7 at the Performing Arts Center at Purchase College.

"Before there was a Beethoven or a Mozart or a Bach there was the Vienna Boys’ Choir singing before the Austrian Court," representatives said in a release. "In recent years this centuries-old choir of young men, ages 10 to 14, has become almost synonymous with the Christmas season through their recordings of classical, popular, and international holiday music. CDs are good, but in-person is better. The voices of these young people, pure and beautiful, mesh and meld into an overwhelming and unforgettable musical experience."

Residents are asked to visit the Performing Arts Center website for tickets and more information.
