Logo Vienna University Philharmonic

Symphonic Orchestra

This orchestra consists of around 80 musicians, who are mainly students from various Viennese universities. The repertoire consists of works from the Wiener Klassik and early Romantic period. The repertoire selection is technically somewhat easier than that of the Philharmonic Orchestra.

On December 8th and 15th, Ludwig van Beethoven's 9th Symphony will be played in the Vienna University main hall. On June 9th and 10th, 2025, two concerts will be played with seldom performed works by Claude Debussy, Gabriel Fauré and Arthur Honegger, the main work being Debussy's "Trois Nocturnes".

From 18th to 23rd June (Corpus Christi) an optional orchestra workshop will take place in Tuscany.

In the last academic year, the great C major symphony and other choral and orchestral works by Franz Schubert were played. Previous projects included the “Carmina Burana” by Carl Orff, the “Peer Gynt Suite” by Edvard Grieg, “Schicksalslied” by Johannes Brahms, the “Egmont Overture” by Ludwig van Beethoven and the “Carmen Suites” No. 1 and 2 by Georges Bizet.

We are particularly looking for horns, violas and double basses, but all instruments are welcome to this orchestra!
