After MYO successful performance in Musikverein (well-knownas Golden Hall) last summer in 2012, we are honoured to be invited once again to hold our second performance at the prestigious Brahms Saal(Brahms Hall) of Musikverein this year. This is an encouraging recognition to MYO in the quest for artistic excellence and a milestone for every member of MYO. Thus, we are delighted to introduce you our 2013 MYO Vienna Musikverein Performance Tour.

This year, we will bring our orchestra led by MYO Artistic Director and Chief Conductor, Ms. Synthia Ko and a newly formed ensemble - String Chamber led by MYO Headof Strings, Mr. Goh Ching, to perform up to four concerts respectively at Brahms Hall of Musikverein, parish church of Aflenz, Bruck, as well as the city of Kafenburg.  You’ll also have valuable opportunity to be guest conducted by recipient of the NikolausHarnoncourt Award and former Director of Johannes Brahms Music School(JBMS), Professor Ernst Smole.  Apart from the performance, members will be coached by distinguished musicians from the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra(VPO), artists and professors from Austria at the beautiful town, Aflenz.
