Eating and exploring our way through the world

An International Concert in Vienna

Posted by Amanda @ The Hungry Wanderers on August 28, 2009

After our relaxing cruise down the Danube through the Wachau Valley, we finally arrived in Vienna.  We all enjoyed an earlier dinner and then boarded buses to head into the city for a concert!  The concert was hosted in the Kursalon Wien and led by the Sound of Vienna.

The room was the size of a ballroom with lots and lots of rows of chairs.  It was clear that it was a tourist group attraction as there were many groups of 50+ people in them from all around the world.  When the host welcomed everyone at the beginning, he did so in many languages 🙂

Since Johann Strauss used to conduct his own concerts right in this building, the focus of the concert was his music.  Some of it we recognized and some of it we didn’t.  Along with the music, we also had dancers.

We were very impressed with all of the musicians and dancers.  They were all very talented!  While I noted that this concert appeared to have many, many tour groups, it looks as though individuals can purchase tickets to attend the shows as well.  If you find yourself in Vienna, looking for something to do one night, consider attending this concert 🙂 I think you’ll enjoy it… (as long as you like classical music!)
