Vienna Summer - Music History & Performance

Program Overview

Vienna Music

Located in the heart of Europe, Vienna is a city of about 1.8 million inhabitants that has, since its founding in the 3rd century, served as a bridge between a myriad of cultures. As an important crossroads between North and South, East and West, the city became a natural melting pot for new ideas. Out of this cultural richness has emerged a wealth of artistic accomplishments and innovative thinking—a heritage that we explore in our summer programs.

Vienna has been home to many of history's greatest composers, from Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven to Brahms, Mahler, and Schoenberg. To this day, the world-renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Musikverein, and the Staatsoper continue to help make Vienna a true "city of music."

Study Music History and Performance in Vienna, a city recognized around the world for its influence on the development of classical music.

Academics & Curriculum

Each summer the Music History component focuses on a different topic and period rooted in the rich musical tradition of the city. These topics rotate on a four-year basis so that students can return year after year and continue to expand their horizons. Students enroll in one German language course and one music course for a total of 6 credits. Students who have taken at least one year of university-level German courses may take a second music course instead instead of language.

The Music Performance Workshop (MS390) allows students to expand their repertoire and performance skills as they immerse themselves in the cultural surroundings and performance traditions of Vienna. Students must audition to participate. In addition to group sessions and lectures, the performance studies component includes individual technical training (up to six hours of private instruction is included in the program fee) and participation in master classes. The concluding event of the summer is a public concert held in the Baroque performance hall at the IES Abroad Center.
