The coronavirus pandemic will also change the Christmas season. The classical concert “Christmas in Vienna” will not take place as usual this year in the Wiener Konzerthaus. Together with the event organizer and the artists of the “Christmas in Vienna” family, ORF has decided to reinvent the traditional Christmas concert in co-production with ARTE.
Camilla Nylund, Angelika Kirchschlager, Thomas Hampson, Luca Pisaroni and Saimir Pirgu will meet the Vienna Boys Choir and the cello quartet “Die Kolophonistinnen” for a house concert at the legendary Hotel Sacher.
With songs that the artists personally associate with Christmas, they set an example of community, especially in a time when togetherness can no longer be taken for granted.
