請幫我翻譯-有關微也納合唱團

One of the oldest musical institutions in the world the Vienna Boys`Choir, was to sing

exclusively for the court in church services , at private concerts, and on state occasions.

For the next 400 years, that isexactly what it did, receiving at the same time full financial

support form the state. When the Hapsburg Empire disintegrated in 1918, however, the

choir became an independent institution and soon learned to stand on its own two feet.

The Austrian state continues, even today,to provide some support for the institution in

the form of rent-free accommodation in the Augartenpalais, a government-owned palace

in a park in the center of Vienna,but this represents a very tiny contribution to the

enormous budget the choir needs for its survival.

Superficially, the Vienna Boys`Choir has not changed over the past 500 years. The

boys still wear sailor suits --navy blue for daytime performances and cream for evening

wear. Their repertoire is still mostly religious and classical music, with Mozart, Haydn,

and Schubert as their favorite sources. They still work very hard, practicing for two and

a half hours every afternoon, after completing a normal day at school. what`s more ,

they give an average of about 300 public performances a year, of which at least 200

are abroad. In 2000, for example, they gave a staggering 342 performances, 209 of

which were abroad--a tougher schedule than any ever undertaken by even the most

resilient of rock bands, such as the Rolling Stones.

    維也納男孩合唱團,世界上最年久的音樂團體組織之一,以往都是專在教堂儀式中為皇室廷臣演唱、或是在私人的音樂會、隆重的場合中才會一展歌喉。四百年來皆是如此,在同一時間內收到來自各方的財務援助。不過,在1918 年哈斯堡帝國瓦解後,這個合唱團便獨立出來自為一家,很快就學會如何自力更生。

    即使是現在,奧地利仍然不斷的為合唱團提供一些協助,像是可以免費借宿在Augartenpalais,這是當地政府在維也納中央公園所擁有的宮殿,但儘管如此,對合唱團龐大的預算來說,這也是微末細節的貢獻,還不足以支持合唱團的存活。

    表面上,維也納男孩合唱團過去五百年以來似乎都沒有任何改變。男孩子們還是穿著海軍服--白天的表演服是海軍藍;而晚上是奶油白。表演節目仍多是宗教古典樂曲,最喜歡以莫札特、海地、舒伯特的曲子當作其來源。他們依舊奮力不懈,每天放學結束後,下午都要練習兩個半小時。此外,他們每年平均演出三百場公共表演,其中至少有兩百場在海外。例如說在兩千年時,他們演出了342場,著實驚人,而有209場是在國外演出--即使對像滾石這樣活力充沛的搖滾樂團來說,這依舊是任何人接手過最最緊湊的行程了
