Watch for Endicott native Matthew Beach on Great Performances on New Year's Day

WSKG TV is airing Great Performances: From Vienna: The New Year’s Celebration 2016 on January 1 at 7:30 pm.  As part of the program, the Vienna Boys Choir will be performing two of the selections.  Endicott native Matthew Beach is currently singing with the Vienna Boys Choir.  They were just back from a performance tour around German and Switzerland when he was able to chat with us via Skype from the school in Vienna.  He tells about how he became a chorister, what it’s like living in a palace in a park on an island in the Danube River, and how busy their academic and musical schedules keep them. http://wskg.org/audio/matthewbeach.mp3
