Have you come across a concert given by the Vienna Symphony Orchestra or Radio Symphony Orchestra? This is possible on Friday at the “Orchestra for All”. In this event, concerts in Hernal should become a meeting place between musicians and listeners.

Turning those who don’t like concerts into big fans: That’s what the Day of the Orchestra for All campaign wants. The goal of public concerts is to reach people who would not normally attend classical music and opera concerts. RSO bassist Marcelo Padilla explains: “The audience has the opportunity to ask us questions and you can connect with people who don’t normally attend orchestra concerts. Everything is very lively.”

A type of live radio broadcast

A trio of the ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra will present a very special souvenir from 4:15 pm to 6 pm, says Radio Symphony moderator and co-organizer Evelyn Mum: “There will be a radio where you can turn the knobs a little bit and you can choose such a style of music. “

There are three types of music to choose from on My Radio. “Based on our tradition, we decided not only to play Ö1 music, but also to prepare typical songs from FM4 and Ö3.” Bassoonist Padilla gives a small look: “I don’t want to expect too many surprises, but we have, among other things, a tiger’s eye equipped.” The final RSO concert was followed by a final concert by the Vienna Professional Orchestra.
