NVYS Prague and Vienna Tour 2020
IN CELEBRATION OF THE 250TH ANNIVERSARY OF BEETHOVEN'S BIRTH
NVYS and Modesto Youth Symphony Orchestra have joined forces to perform at Beethoven 250 Orchestra Festival June, 2020 in Vienna as part of Beethoven’s 250th Birthday Celebration taking place throughout Germany and Austria with a culminating performance in Vienna’s historic Musikverein, home to the Vienna Philharmic. We will also perform at Sts. Simon and Jude Church in Prague, home to the Prague Symphony Orchestra.
Vienna, affectionately known as the “Capital of Classical Music”, holds a special place in the hearts of musicians as it was here where composers like Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, and Beethoven established their musical careers. Beethoven said of this city, “Perhaps heaven will permit me not to have to give up Vienna as my permanent abode.” Countless other composers and musicians have at one point called Vienna home as it has continued to embrace its musical tradition and propel classical music into the present day and future.
Tour is a great time to raise the bar and encourage our musicains to meet the challenge of playing the original scores of the known and little-known master composers, while playing on world class stages to international audiences. Tour also provides cultural experiences, masterclasses, and a time for bonding that creates lasting frienships and a stronger orchestra.
