Franz Schalk Medal in Gold for Dr. Christian Konrad

The Philharmonic general business meeting on July 30, 2008, voted to bestow the Franz Schalk Medal in Gold on Dr. Christian Konrad, Advocate General of the Austrian Raiffeisen Federation, upon the occasion of his 65th birthday. Dr. Konrad, who is a dedicated supporter of  science and research (Ludwig Boltzmann Society), cultural sponsoring (Vienna Festival, Albertina) and social projects (Street Children of Father Sporschill in Rumania), is also the initiator of the Raiffeisen Climate Protection Initiative, and chairman of the association "Unser Stephansdom". In a similarly dedicated and efficient manner, Dr. Konrad has accompanied and supported our orchestra for many years, in the tradition of the great opera director and conductor, Franz Schalk (1863-1931), who made the appeal, "Look after my Philharmoniker!" It is in Schalk's memory that this medal was created in 1963, and which was awarded to Dr. Christian Konrad on October 10, 2008, on the podium of the Golden Hall.
