Marin Symphony Youth Orchestra
Concert Tour of Prague, Vienna, and Budapest
June 20th – 28th
The Marin Symphony Youth Orchestra is excited to announce its first tour in 20 years! As they prepare, practice, and pack, they also raise funds to meet a $125,000 goal. You can help to reinstate this valuable, life-changing opportunity for Marin’s young serious musicians by donating to this fund.
Members of Marin Symphony Youth Orchestra will embark on a Concert Tour of Central Europe in June 2019 through Prague, Vienna, and Budapest. Students will participate in three professionally-produced concerts and enjoy an unparalleled educational and cultural experience.
Prague, Czech Republic
Capital of the Czech Republic and historical capital of Bohemia, Prague is truly a golden city and a Renaissance jewel set in the heart of central Europe. From the extravagant medieval streets of Mala Strana to the baroque extravagance of the churches in the new town and on to the exquisite Jugendstil decoration of the major concert halls, Prague is a paradise for anyone who appreciates beauty in cities. Sightseeing may include St. Vitus Cathedral, the Lesser Town, the Charles Bridge, the Old Town, Prague Castle, and Karlstenj Castle.
Vienna is a city that breathes music. Home to Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, and Johann Strauss, it combines superb architecture and imperial grandeur with a dazzling array of cultural activities. Sightseeing may include Parliament, the State Museums, the Imperial Palace, the Opera House, the Stephansdom, and the Haus der Musik.
Once two separate cities, Budapest now spans the Danube River, linked by eight bridges. With its hot springs, elegant concert halls, opera houses, and fine buildings, it is considered by many to be the most beautiful city in Europe. Sightseeing may include Fisherman’s Bastion, St. Matthias Church, Heroes Square, and the Szechenyi Thermal Baths.
