The Luther College Symphony has been spending January in Vienna, Austria.

Musicians had daily rehearsals and coursework, which includes visits to museums and other cultural sites in Vienna.  In the evenings, students attend operas, ballets and concerts.

Symphony members are flying home on Monday, but not before closing their residency in grand fashion.  The symphony performed concerts at the Slovak National Theatre in Bratislava, Slovakia; at the Kultur Kongress Zentrum Eisenstadt in Eisenstadt, Austria; and ended with a concert at the famed Musikverein Golden Hall– the home of the Vienna Philharmonic–in Vienna.

After returning to Decorah, the Luther College Symphony Orchestra will perform a homecoming concert at 7:00 p.m. Sunday, February 10th, in the Main Hall of the Center for Faith and Life on Luther's campus.  The performance, which will feature selections performed in Austria, will be open to the public with no charge for admission.
