3rd  Annual World Orchestra Festival

Vienna 2015


The 3rd annual World Orchestra Festival took place in July 2015. This event was initiated by well-known professors of the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna in cooperation with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

Young musicians from around the world are invited to attend a one-week workshop in and around Vienna. Over the course of the week, there are lectures on diverse musical genres, rehearsals and concerts.

For the most part, the concerts were held in either Haydn Hall in Eisenstadt, in the new Music Theater or “MuTh” of the Vienna Boys’ Choir, or the Festival Hall at Vienna City Hall. More than 350 young musicians participated in the events.

The grand finale was held in the Golden Hall of the Vienna Music Association and was opened by the Third Viennese Parliamentary President Marianne Klicka.



The organizers wanted to open the final concert with an Austrian orchestra, so choir director Friedrich Lentner was called upon. Of course, he heeded the call without hesitation because there just aren’t many chances in life to perform in the Grand Golden Hall of the Music Association.






As a result, the Music Corps of the Lazarus Union played the opening. Our first piece of music was Franz Schubert’s Marche militaire. The second piece was the famous A soldier stands on the bank of the Volga from the operetta The Tsarevich by Franz Lehár.

The tenor Michael Wagner, who is a dedicated member of the Music Corps and has performed for years with our choir director, received ecstatic applause for his excellent and touching Performance.



The feedback from the organizers, numerous professors and concert managers was extremely positive and a testimonial to the hard work of our Music Corps.
