Before leaving Vienna after a three-concert residency at the Musikverein, Chicago Symphony Orchestra musicians seized the opportunity to see some of the city’s most famous sights, including St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the Schönbrunn Palace.

From Vienna, musicians took a short flight to Luxembourg, the next stop on the CSO’s Europe Tour 2020. Music Director Riccardo Muti led the CSO in works by Wagner, Hindemith and Dvorak at the Philharmonie Luxembourg. From there, CSO moves on to Paris, with additional stops in Naples, Florence, Milan and Lugano.
