On June 2nd, 2015, the classes 3B and 3C went to Vienna together with their music teachers Edith Achleitner-Koch and Andy Charlewood to listen to a concert in one of the most famous concert halls of the world: the Wiener Musikverein. It was a moderated concert played by the Sinfonietta Baden in the rather new Glass Hall. The orchestra performed Joseph Haydn´s “Farewell symphony” and allowed some of the pupils to sit right among the musicians. Others could even try, after a short introduction by conductor Christoph Ehrenfellner, to conduct a small part of the piece themselves, which was real fun.
All the questions asked by the children were answered by the musicians, the conductor and the presenter Robert Rieder. So the pupils really felt involved in the performance and enjoyed their time which passed very quickly.
