We are avid concert goers in the US and would love to choose the best concerts musically that are available during our visit. My husband has loved Strauss since childhood, and I love everything, but am a singer so would like some vocal. I believe that we have decided to try to get tickets to Carmen at the State Opera House on the 4th (Traviata looks sold out) and we are thinking of a Saturday, August 31st orchestra concert as well, but could do Sunday or Monday too. I see the Vienna Hofburg Orchestra at "Redoutensaal", the Vienna Royal Orchestra at Imperial Hall, and the Salonorchester Alt Wien at Vienna Kursalon. It looks like there is also an orchestra at the Schonbrunn Palace and the Residence Orchestra at"Auersperg Palace", Arsenal. The one other event I see it the Classic Exclusive - St. Anne's Church on Sunday night with Ensemble Concertante Wien.
Does anyone have advice on where we would hear the best music, or other options than the ones I have stated that might be better? Thanks for any input!
