We are very proud to finally be able to share the big news with you!
As the first of its kind, AMADEUS International School Vienna is now launching an international youth orchestra which accepts students from 12-19 years old; as well as any teachers, school personnel, or parents of students who are members of the orchestra. We are pleased to welcome musicians from outside AMADEUS Vienna to join the orchestra.
“The name of the orchestra might include ‘youth’, but that is because it is for the youth, not because it is limited to youth musicians” – Head of School, Dr Jeremy House
Auditions are scheduled to take place on 27 and 28 November 2020. Please note that due to COVID-19, the audition dates are tentative.
Please fill out the registration form and return it to the Academy Office or send it by e-mail to email@example.com.
Renowned Conductor Will Lead the Orchestra
Not only will members of the orchestra have the chance to play alongside their mentor, teacher, and other aspiring talents from around Vienna; they will also have the honour to be guided by the renowned conductor and composer Christoph Ehrenfellner. The Vienna/Salzburg-originated maestro has performed his works at various stages around the world and in Vienna, including Wiener Musikverein, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Cité de la Musique Paris, Royal Albert Hall London, Oji Hall Tokyo – and many more.
Christoph Ehrenfellner has created multiple arrangements for violin and orchestra on Schubert, Beethoven, and original Ehrenfellner-compositions. It is truly an honour to have him leading the orchestra, and we look very much forward to working with him.
