Vienna Boys' Choir
This is what I did on my day "off" in Vienna last week. If you didn't see the story, here's the link.
Cincinnati has two local boys who are current members of the choir, Jacob and Noah Markowich of Westwood. I enjoyed visiting the movie set when the choir, known as the Wiener Sangerknaben, were making a film. It was fun to find them in a small room rehearsing for their scene with their director, Gerald Wirth, and also to walk through the room with the "extras," dressed somberly for their roles.

We have a gallery of photos on our site taken by Lukas Beck for the Enquirer, but I want to point out also, that the director, Curt Faudon, a prize-winning New York-based director/producer, can be seen in some of the shots. Here he is in the center, behind the camera facing local boys Noah, left, and Jacob Markowich of Westwood.
Wiener Sangerknaben director Gerald Wirth leads the choir in a Schubert Mass for the film.
The Minoritenkirche near the Hofburg Palace in Vienna's center was the movie set while a crew filmed a scene for the upcoming feature film-documentary, "Silk Road" (working title).
