Vienna - Summer 2015

Every night in Vienna about 10,000 music fans are treated to classical music, something that is simply unheard of in any other city in the world!  We invite you to join the fun during our 2015 Vienna Study Abroad, May 26-July 6.
Vienna’s musical life is dominated by four great monumental performance venues.  The Musikverein, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Vienna State Opera House and the cathedral-Stephansdom.  Combined with world-class theatre, art museums, galleries and historic sites that span the ages, there is something for everyone in Vienna!   Field trips are offered to other areas of interest such as Salzburg and Prague!
UM Faculty customized a program with YOU, the Music Student in mind!  Those with a major or interest in music or art will study the  great master works of the ages, perform in historic concert halls, walk  the path of the great composers and artists that lived and worked in Vienna: Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, Klimt, Otto Wagner,  Bruckner, Czerny, Haydn, Mahler, Schoenberg, Strauss and many, many more.
Ranked as the “best city in the world to live” Vienna has proven itself to be safe, friendly to Americans and clean.  Students will live in apartments with full kitchens, living rooms or common areas close to classes, transportation, concerts, faculty, top medical facilities, shopping and recreation.
Vienna Austria
Students enjoy world class concerts, opera and art, such as the Vienna Philharmonic,  considered by many to be the best in the world! Students engage in performances and open rehearsals. Vienna State Opera: experience one of the top opera addresses in the world—where you can hear the best in first-class productions.  The famous stage offers a different program every day, with over 50 operas and ballets each season. Chamber Music: hear the leading pianists, violinists, cellists, string quartets, contemporary ensembles, vocalists, wind players, brass ensembles, percussionists and period instrument ensembles in the world.  Attend grand choral concerts and performances by the Vienna Boys Choir who have an enthusiastic international following. They are often called “the youngest Viennese Ambassadors.”  Museum of Fine Arts: built in 1891, near the Imperial Palace, it houses the extensive collections of the imperial family.  With its vast array of eminent works, it is considered one of the most eminent museums in the world, from Rembrant to Monet, it is all there!
The 2015 Vienna program includes 178 miles of walking tours. Participants see the homes of Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and more. Visit the graves of these Vienna composers including Mahler and Brahms.  Walk where they walked, listen to concerts in the grand halls that premiered their works.
