The Vienna Brass Connection in times of the Corona crisis

Unfortunately our concert in Lower Austria at the beginning of July 2020 had to be cancelled – but there is an alternative date in July 2021! How it looks like with our concerts in France and Germany in summer is still in the stars…

It’s gonna be okay. It will.

In the meantime, you can visit us on our YouTube channel, or listen to our CDs on iTunes or Spotify

We would of course be happy and feel even more appreciated if you order CDs directly from us!

All the best and see you soon!

Villach, Gunskirchen, Frankfurt – March 2019

In Vienna they are called Frankfurter. In Frankfurt they are called Wiener. In this case, this is wurscht (adjective; Viennese for “it doesn’t matter”). It is also difficult to give the music of the Vienna Brass Connection a clear name. In March 2019 in Villach, Gunskirchen and at the big debut concert in Germany at the Alte Oper Frankfurt a melange (subjective; frz. mélange  “mixture”, Viennese coffee speciality) from selected works by Giacomo Puccini, Richard Strauss, Lalo Shifrin and John Williams will be served.

Concert at the festival Internationale Konzerttage Stift Zwettl

Sunday, 8th of July 2018 | 4:00 PM | Stift Zwettl
A – 3910 Zwettl

A concert of the Vienna Brass Connection in two parts as great final of the festival Internationale Konzerttage Stift Zwettl 2018. The concert begins lyrically brilliantly in the beautiful Stiftskirche. The Vienna Brass Connection is supported by the internationally renowned organist Hans-Ola Ericsson. The second part takes place as an open air in the inner courtyard of the Stift Zwettl.

The Vienna Brass Connection will shake the old and venerable walls of the abbey. But there is no danger: the concert was approved by the Federal Monuments Office and even higher levels… –> TICKETS
