The Sussex County Youth Orchestra represented the State of New Jersey in Vienna’s Konzerthaus in the Celebrate Haydn Orchestra Festival. This was Vienna’s official orchestra event commemorating the 200th Anniversary of Haydn’s Passing.
Here is what directors Gerald and Dawn Tedesco said about their experience:
Our overall impression is that this was a wonderfully executed tour to Vienna & Prague. We had a positive musical and “beyond” experience. The performance in the Wiener Konzerthaus was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! Where do we begin? Acoustics 2nd only to Carnegie Hall. Ambiance 2nd to nothing else. Concert promotion superb. Great audience. On site MCI staff worked hard to make the logistics come together. The concert in Smetana Hall in Prague was again EXCELLENT. Great promotion in that the place was nearly full. WE HAD A GREAT TIME. WE ARE ALREADY PLANNING OUR NEXT TOUR WITH MCI.
