The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra Academy was founded in the summer of 2018. The main objective of the academy is the artistic training of young musicians through individual private lessons, chamber music, audition preparation and orchestral training through work within the orchestra.
Academy students will be accompanied by individual members of the orchestra as pedagogues and mentors, working with them in the preparation of solo repertoire at the highest level. Students will also have the opportunity to perform chamber music on stage with members of the orchestra.
In this manner, academy students will have the opportunity to experience first-hand a unique style of playing, a variety of interpretations and the orchestra's inimitable sound, all based on long-established traditions. They will work with the greatest conductors and most renowned soloists of our times and perform with the Vienna Philharmonic in the world's most famous concert halls, experiencing the unbridled enthusiasm of international audiences. It is this passion for music and dedication to the profession which the orchestra wishes to pass on to the next generations.
