Nicholas Harnoncourt, with whom he worked continuously for nearly four decades, had a central influence on the choir. The Arnold Schoenberg choir has also been the home choir of the Theater an der Vienna since 2006.

Founder and Director to this day Erwin Ortner, without whom the Austrian choral scene would have been far from unimaginable: at age 33, the trained church musician and choir teacher Vienna Boys took up the choir held at his university, today’s mdw, of which he also later held the position of rector.
