HIGH SCHOOL & YOUNG ADULT | MUSIKVEREIN
Now at the Musikverein Vienna!
Announcing a new Honors Performance Series program at the "crown jewel of the world's concert halls."
Introducing the 2020 Honors Performance Series at the Musikverein
Late June - Early July 2020
Vienna, Austria: It's been called the "capital city of classical music." Composers including Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, and Strauss, called it home—as does the "crown jewel of the world's concert halls," the Musikverein. For 2020, we are pleased to invite talented high school and young adult singers and instrumentalists to join us for a once-in-a-lifetime performance experience in the Musikverein's Great Hall (Großer Saal), famed for its impeccable acoustics and unmatched musical history. Selected Finalists will come together in Vienna to learn from renowned conductors, network with talented musicians from around the world, and become immersed in a city rich with culture and history.
- High School (US grades 9-12 or international equivalent during the 2019-20 school year):
- Mixed Choir
- Orchestra (format TBD)
- Young Adult (high school graduates aged 18-25)
- Instrumental ensemble (format TBD, all instruments considered)
We will begin accepting applications beginning May 2019.
Nomination from a music teacher/professional is a required application component for all Honors Performance Series programs. We are now accepting nominations for all of our 2020 programs on our website (see below).
