Study Abroad: Symphony Orchestra Vienna Residency

Every four years, Symphony Orchestra maintains an intensive three-week residency in Vienna, Austria, culminating in three public performances including a final performance at the Wiener Konzerthaus.

The trip includes daily rehearsals, lectures and discussions, museum visits and performances focusing on Viennese history, culture and music traditions. Study topics include the clash between Christian Europe and Islam, the Austrian Baroque, fin de siècle Vienna, the Holocaust and contemporary Austrian politics. On-site visits focus on the study of representative works of music, art, and architecture emblematic of Austria history.
