Join the GVSU ART GALLERY for a magical week in Vienna!
We’ll immerse ourselves in all this rich, prestigious city has to offer … Christmas markets with their enticing aromas, sparkling lights and unique wares; sumptuous palaces; the incomparable Vienna Boys Choir; legendary Lippizaner horses; inviting cafés; fabulous museums; and a variety of musical performances.

“Mit Schlag” means with cream—that’s the way the world-famous Sachertorte is served and what our whole week in Vienna will be like!

One extraordinary highlight of our tour is an intimate concert with GVSU music faculty and international Classical Music Award Nominees Arthur Campbell and Helen Marlais in the 75-seat Bösendorfer Recital Hall at the Mozarthaus. Stereo Magazine raves, “Campbell’s and Marlais’ playing is always exact, elegant, without excess. The beauty of this
genuinely joint playing is so engaging that it seems to lack for nothing.” This very special event is made possible by Bösendorfer Pianos, Inc.

Before the concert, we’ll enjoy a private tour of the apartment in which Mozart lived and worked from 1784 to 1787. This is where the great composer wrote “The Marriage of Figaro” and three of the six Haydn Quartets. It is the only Viennese apartment occupied by Mozart that is still intact today. Immediately following the performance, we’ll be Campbell’s and Marlais’ guests at a private reception.
