Fine music transcends national barriers, binding people together with their shared love of musical events.

For many people, the New Year begins with just such an occasion, the New Year’s concert from the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra [VPO]. This special concert now reaches audiences in more than 90 countries.

For more than ten years the Public Media Alliance [PMA] has partnered with the VPO and as the concert is broadcast by many PMA members we thought you might enjoy this insight into the works of a new international initiative by the VPO – the Orchestra Academy.
