Join us for an unforgettable music experience in Austria with performances of Joseph Haydn's Heiligmesse, Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy, Haydn’s Der Sturm, and Mozart’s Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter”.
One of the most exciting features of the festival is rehearsing and performing in amazing venues like the Esterházy Palace, considered one of the great historic and acoustically perfect concert halls in Europe. You will also have a rare opportunity to perform the Heiligmesse within the high mass at St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna, the Bergkirche in Eisenstadt, and the Pfarrkirche in Mattersburg. This unique opportunity to study and perform in the same acoustical settings that fostered the musical genius of composers like Joseph Haydn, Beethoven and others, helps bring classical music alive for today's musician.
