OMV is a partner of the Wiener Konzerthaus

Since its foundation in 1913, the Wiener Konzerthaus has combined tradition and modernity at the highest level. The diverse range of programs includes more than 700 events per season, from classical to jazz, pop and world music, as well as numerous events for children and young people. The four halls of the Wiener Konzerthaus can be used in parallel or together for one event. The magnificent Great Hall can accommodate approximately 2000 visitors.

OMV is a long-standing partner of the Wiener Konzerthaus and will support the cycles "Fridays@7" and "Im Klang" in the 2021/22 season.

With the "Fridays@7" series, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra invites listeners to immerse themselves musically in the weekend shortly after work at the end of the working week. The first part of the evening is spent enjoying a compact program of popular pieces in the Great Hall, followed by another encounter with the musicians in an upbeat concert finale in the Great Foyer.

The "Im Klang" series offers a special musical experience: the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and principal conductor Andrés Orozco-Estrada leave their usual place on stage and find themselves spread out on the first floor of the Great Hall. The audience is invited to take a seat between the orchestra musicians.

In the innovative format, two different musicians present their music to the audience at each event and give a personal insight into their careers. "Tandem" is a synonym for congenial team building, the interplay between opposing artists, texts and music, voice and instrument.

Young bands and vocal projects in small and large ensembles present their varied and fresh program for the Viennese club scene in the "Urban Fusion" concert series. They mix a wide variety of styles from jazz fusion to groove pop, salsa, hip hop, R&B and indie dance. Whether it's an 18-year-old songwriter or a 13-strong Latin ensemble, the »Urban Fusion« mode mixes the passions and influences of the youngest generation of creative musicans: they don't mince their words and stand full of energy and dedication for tolerance, Equality and cheeky honesty.
