The world-renowned boys’ choir’s 2015 exclusive Houston performance for Brilliant will feature secular songs from the internationally acclaimed film "Silk Road." The boys take you on a musical journey through time and space on Friday, October 30, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. The single performance will take place at St. Paul's United Methodist Church on 5501 Main Street. General admission tickets of $55.00 are on sale now online at http://www.BrilliantLectures.org

Experience the music through the eyes of these gifted boys. The choir’s Silk Road project inspired film director Curt Faudon to make a film about the globetrotting choristers. For over a year, Faudon followed the boys’ life in Vienna and on the road, filming the boys at work and at play, on and off stage, meeting and working with artists from Central Asia, China and India.

Since 1926, the globetrotting 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.

Today there are 100 choristers from 30 different nations between the ages of ten and fourteen, divided into four touring choirs. Between them, the four choirs give around 300 concerts and performances each year in front of almost half a million people. Each group spends nine to eleven weeks of the school year on tour. They visit virtually all European countries, and they are frequent guests in Asia, Australia and the Americas.
