The world-famous melodies by Mozart and waltzes by Strauss have their origins in Vienna. They belong to this beautiful city just like St. Stephen’s Cathedral or the “Heuriger” and are its cultural heritage and landmark at the same time.
The Vienna Hofburg Orchestra presents the most popular compositions by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the Strauss family as well as works by Kalman and Lehar in its Strauss & Mozart concerts.
The orchestra consists of up to 40 musicians and is accompanied by internationally renowned opera singers and classical ballet from Vienna’s opera houses.
The concerts traditionally take place in the Ceremonial Hall (Zeremoniensaal) of the Vienna Hofburg Imperial Palace and the Mozart Hall of the Konzerthaus Vienna.
On special occasions the concerts also take place at the Vienna State Opera.
