Projects

Discover the orchestra

In creative projects the musicians of the Wiener Symphoniker as well as other artists work with children or youths on a musical theme or on a piece of classical music for several weeks. But based on that piece or theme the young people develop their own creative approaches and ideas. In the end complex and exciting performances arise out of that work.
