Join us for an unforgettable music experience in Austria with performances that include these works by Joseph Haydn:

  • Paukenmesse (Mass in Time of War-Missa in Tempori Belli)
  • Der Sturm (La Tempesta)
  • Cello Concerto in D Major
  • Symphony No. 101 (The Clock).

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 Mass in Time of War (Paukenmesse) within the high mass at St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna and the Bergkirche in Eisenstadt.  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.
