This tour is a wonderful blend of culture, performance opportunities, and music appreciation, as you visit Austria and the Czech Republic, birthplaces to some of the world’s most renowned composers. Begin your tour in Vienna, where you will discover the Imperial City with your local guide. Your three days here will be filled with many of the highlights, including a visit to Schonbrunn Palace, former summer residence of the Habsburg Family, and the House of Music, which will appeal to all of your musical senses. Other musical highlights include attending Mass to hear the Vienna Boys’ Choir, attending a performance by the Vienna Residence Orchestra, and performing your own concert for a local community near the city. From here, continue your journey to Melk, with a tour of the Benedictine Abbey, before heading to beautiful Salzburg, city of Mozart.
