“Christmas in Vienna – Family Edition” broadcast on ORF 2 and ARTE
Thomas Hampson, the Wiener Sängerknaben, the ORF Radio-Sinfonieorchester Wien, and a group of acclaimed soloists come together to make music and to set an example for solidarity for this year’s “Christmas in Vienna” concert.
Since the traditional “Christmas in Vienna” event cannot occur in the Wiener Konzerthaus as usual due to the pandemic, this year’s Christmas in Vienna TV Special will be broadcast via ORF 2 on December 21st at 10:30 pm CET, and on ARTE on December 24th at 6:15 pm CET.
At the Hotel Sacher, Mr. Hampson, Angelika Kirchschlager, Camilla Nylund, Saimir Pirgu, and Luca Pisaroni will present Christmas carols from their homeland and the classical repertoire. At the end of the evening, the artists will come to Vienna’s St. Stephen’s Cathedral to play “Silent Night” under the musical direction of Sascha Goetzel, together with the Wiener Sängerknaben and freelance musicians from eleven nations.
