Wiener Symphoniker
“The Vienna Symphony Orchestra is like the Viennese Alpine water” -
they provide a large city with the most important staple food in highest quality, at an affordable price and to an extent that reaches all the population.

This quality has been consequently cultivated around the world since 1900 - supporting Vienna’s distinctive role as a city of music. The Vienna Symphony Orchestra is the concert orchestra of the City of Vienna, being responsible for the greater part of the musical life of the capital city. Its activities are diverse, whereby the traditional cultivation of the Viennese sound quality combined with new forms of music and their presentation occupy a central position.
A remarkable innovation is the Discussion Concert Series ? “The Different Concert” in which the music is introduced in a witty, intelligent way while the Chamber Music Series displays the broad range of the musicians’ personalities, from baroque style, Schrammel music to modern jazz.
Within the project “Touch the Orchestra”, musicians go to elementary schools, holding workshops in small groups for kids.
The Vienna Symphony makes approximately 160 appearances each year with concerts and opera performances as well as 50 chamber concerts and workshops. These are arranged by the Musikverein, the Konzerthaus and, since 1980, by the orchestra itself with four different concert series.

In addition, numerous tours are undertaken throughout Europe and overseas countries. Furthermore, the orchestra has been “Orchestra in Residence” at the Bregenz Festival since 1946, where it performs in a majority of opera and concert productions. With the beginning of 2006, a new challenge has arisen as the orchestra performs in many productions at the Theater an der Wien which has resumed its former function as an opera house.
