Info
Musical fun and enjoyment for everyone between 11 and 99 years old! The “Klassik Hits (Classical Hits)” family concerts in the Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein concert building have long become a beloved tradition: There, the Wiener Symphoniker performs great works of the classical repertoire, whilst presenter Marko Simsa provides the audience with insights into the musical events through exciting facts and entertaining anecdotes. Now, for the first time, focus will be on the rich treasures of orchestral Christmas literature. Reinforced by the Singverein concert choir of the Friends of Music Society in Vienna, Simsa and the Orchestra under the direction of Johannes Wildner will present excerpts from well-known and popular works, such as J. S. Bach’s Christmas Oratorio and Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel. This will be a perfectly atmospheric and varied stroll with Christmas feelings guaranteed!
