The Vienna Symphony Orchestra offers a richly diverse programme this school year with many choral and orchestral pieces for the festive season. In the concert “Rejoice and be glad”, audiences are invited not only to listen but to themselves become of the performance.
The Vienna Symphony Orchestra, together with the HIB Voices and Young HIB Voices, will be performing an exciting programme of choral and orchestral works in the Musikverein this school year, including “Rejoice and be glad” from Johann Sebastian Bach’s Christmas Oratorio “A Little Man in the Woods” from Engelbert Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel, “Hallelujah” from Handel’s Messiah and “Soon and very soon”, a gospel number you’ll want to sing along to! Music educator Marko Simsa will lead the proceedings with energy and enthusiasm – Christmassy vibes are guaranteed!
Workshops for teachers and pupils will prepare all participants for the big event.
