Backstage | Onstage

What kind of people are those who are driven by their great love of music? Who puts themselves in the spotlight every day and suffers from stage fright? Conductors, soloists and orchestral musicians chat from the inside during artist talks. They answer questions, talk about their extraordinary everyday life, their journey and, of course, about the music. After the talk, the young people can see for themselves at an exclusive open dress rehearsal of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Tonkünstler Orchestra of Lower Austria. Teachers are provided with introductions to the works to prepare for the event visit in class.

For grades 9 to 13 (upper secondary level)
Duration approx. 2 hours (without break)
Pupils free of charge (registration required from 12.9.2024)

Archive goes to school

The Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde and its home, the Musikverein, have written music history: it was in contact with Ludwig van Beethoven, Johannes Brahms was “artistic director”, Anton Bruckner taught here, Gustav Mahler conducted, and Johann Strauss Sohn held his concerts. Archive director Johannes Prominczel takes one school class at a time on interactive forays into the past using original music manuscripts and objects from one of the most essential music collections in the world.
