Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra
Located in Musikverein in Vienna, Austria, the Vienna Philharmonic has been highly regarded as one of the best orchestras on the planet. The members are chosen from the Vienna State Opera and each selection involves a lengthy vetting process and requires members to have demonstrated a minimum of three years’ performance for the opera and ballet. This process results in only the most experienced and gifted musicians making the cut.
