Among the Choir's duties today are the Sunday services in the Imperial Chapel, appearances at official state occasions, concerts
in Vienna and abroad as well as appearances in the Vienna State Opera and Volksoper. Each choir spends about 11 weeks of the
academic year on tour; each choir boy sings around 80 performances a year.
Given the boys' concert load, it is essential to maintain a careful balance of musical training, rehearsals, academic lessons and leisure time. The choir's own grammar school - which is attended only by choristers - takes the choir's activities into account. Tours and indeed their preparation are part of the curriculum, the time table is flexible and can be altered at short notice in accordance with the rehearsal and performance schedule.
