6th International festival of Choirs and Orchestras in Vienna

In its magnificent setting on the beautiful Danube, Vienna more than lives up to its centuries old tradition of civilised culture. Beautiful buildings of many architectural styles beautiful palaces, ancient streets, public gardens and street cafes await you in this majestic city. Participate in the Vienna Music Festival and perform for and with other international choirs and orchestras in wonderful venues and make long-lasting friendships with groups from around the world.

Vienna has been home to Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Strauss and continues to maintain an exceptional musical heritage to this day and the city offers the perfect backdrop for this Autumn Music Festival. The festival allows plenty of time for choirs to see Vienna’s sights and attractions and visit the city’s many wonderful museums. Visit St.Stephens Cathedral, built in the 12th century, the stunning baroque Schonbrunn Palace and the Belvedere Gallery with its famous Klimt paintings. See the world famous Vienna Boys Choir, Vienna Philharmonic and perhaps even take time to take in an opera at the Vienna State Opera or Volksoper.
