From California to perform in Vienna

This musical programme, which was founded in 1997 on the USA’s West Coast, serves as a musical home to more than 450 young musicians who perform in four full symphony orchestras as well as a number of chamber ensembles.
The main objective of the organisation is to provide children and young people aged six to eighteen with the opportunity to obtain a first-class musical education and to play in top-quality orchestras. The most ambitious of these ensembles, the prize-winning Peninsula Young Artists, have been performing under the baton of their founder, Sara Salsbury, for many years. During this time their numerous concert tours of Australia, Japan and various European countries have met with much acclaim.
Sara Salsbury has over 45 years’ experience as an orchestral conductor and in teaching music to children and young people. She has received numerous accolades for her work, including admission to the California Women’s Hall of Fame.
The audience can look forward to a great evening with a rich and varied programme:

• American Suite by Antonin Dvorak
• Alla Festiva by Mark Eric Fish
• Polovtsian Dances by Prince Igor Alexander Borodin
• Soirees Musicales by Benjamin Britten
• Toccata and Fugue in D minor by J. S. Bach, arr. Lopez
And many more.
