Boys have been singing at the Viennese court since the 14th century, and in 1498 - more than half a millennium ago - Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I moved his court and his court musicians to Vienna. Historians have settled on 1498 as the foundation date of the Vienna Chapel Imperial (Hofmusikkapelle) and thus the Vienna Boys Choir. Until 1918, the choir sang exclusively for the imperial court, at mass, concerts, private functions, and on state occasions.

We Three (siblings Joshua, Bethany and Manny) warmed hearts with their unforgettable 2018 "America’s Got Talent" audition in which they poured all their emotions into an original song, which they dedicated to their late mother, who passed away two years ago after a battle with cancer. They finished the season as semi-finalists and release their self-titled debut album in December. Joshua uniquely plays the Piano and Drums – sometimes simultaneously, Manny the Guitar, and Bethany the Bass. But there are no rules as each can adeptly swap instruments and often sound like a much larger ensemble. A strong lead vocal is complemented by lush harmonies that glide with superlative ease over complex arrangements that appear deliciously simple. We Three's original songwriting style is positive and purposeful, with smart lyrics and infectious melodies.

Since its inception in 1974, this all-male ensemble has established itself as a major dance phenomenon -- masterfully performing and parodying the full range of the ballet and modern dance repertoire with zany humor and balletic skill.

Men dance all the parts—heavy bodies delicately balancing on toes as swans, sylphs, water sprites, romantic princesses, and angst-ridden Victorian ladies. Their performance will delight and amuse the most knowledgeable dance fans as well as novices to ballet.
