Airs Saturday, September 15, 2012 at 6 p.m. on KPBS TV

For the first time, public television audiences will have the opportunity to experience the renowned Vienna Boys’ Choir as you’ve never seen them before.

The world-renowned boys’ choir presents performances featured in the internationally acclaimed film "Silk Road." The feature length film “Silk Road” was released in 2010 in 30 countries.

The boys take you on a musical journey through time and space. Experience the music through the eyes of these gifted boys and through director Curt Faudon’s unique, sumptuous cinematography.


Since 1926, the globe-trotting choir has been touring the world collecting songs from everywhere. Most recently, the boys have been working on songs from the Silk Road, meeting with artists from Uzbekistan, Pakistan, India, and China, singing, and dancing and drumming along to the music.

“bright, light voices through the centuries” - The New York Times
