Vienna Boys Choir Serenades President Kennedy at the White House

Jan. 9, 1962 - The White House rose garden rang with clear alto and soprano voices today as the Vienna Boys Choir serenaded President Kennedy. The President stepped out to greet the well-disciplined Austrian youngsters, who are on a three-month tour of the United States. He expressed his “great pleasure and satisfaction in having this distinguished chorus here,” and bade them a “very warm welcome to the President’s house.” When the serenade was over, Mr. Kennedy led the applause.
