Angelika Prokopp Summer Academy Vienna Philharmonic
The Angelika Prokopp Summer Academy supports the education of young orchestral players – and has already produced many professional musicians. This year, the participants have the opportunity to perform not only as stage musicians in the productions of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, Don Carlo and Così fan tutte, but also as musicians in the children’s operas of the Salzburg Festival. During their stay in Salzburg, the 60 participants receive intensive tuition from about 30 members of the Vienna Philharmonic. At the final marathon, they perform selections from 20 chamber music works they have rehearsed, presented in three successive concerts with different programmes. The detailed programme, featuring works from the classical to the modern era, will only be determined at the end of the Academy, and thus, musical surprises are guaranteed.
Artistic Director: Michael Werba

Concert of the Vienna Philharmonic with Talented Young Brass and Wind Players
On August 18, 2013 at 11:30 am, talented young brass and wind players present an intriguing concert program together with members of the Vienna Philharmonic under the baton of Karl Jeitler at the Felsenreitschule.
This year, young talents from Vienna and the Burgenland have been invited to perform with the best wind and brass players from the State of Salzburg. At a three-day academy, the 70 participants will rehearse the varied concert program with professional coaching from members of the Vienna Philharmonic.
The Wind Band Concert for Young Talents was initiated as early as 2006 by the Vienna Philharmonic, the Salzburg Festival and the Salzburg State Association of Wind Bands. For Karl Jeitler, who leads the project, working with young people is always an extraordinary and enriching experience. It is particularly important for the musicians of the future to be able to participate in such projects that support them on their path to a professional career in music. After successfully cooperating with various Austrian states, this project takes place for the 8th time in 2013 in cooperation with the States of Vienna and the Burgenland.
Free tickets will be available from July 1, 2013 at the SHOP • KARTEN/TICKETS of the Salzburg Festival, Hofstallgasse 1, 5020 Salzburg (Tel. +43(0)662.8045.6549).
