CME is a proud sponsor of Vienna ConcertoFest, a one- to two-week residency for CME Artists and Young Artists featuring concerto and chamber performances with distinguished guest artists. Immersed in the beauty and serenity of the 12th-century abbey Stift Altenburg, our musicians reside together, rehearsing and performing in a variety of venues in Vienna and surrounding areas, including St. Pölten, Schloss Thalheim and Schloss Halbturn, the summer residence of Empress Maria Theresa.
We also offer programs for high school, college and adult students, who study with our CME musicians in partnership with Altenburger Musik Akademie. Our Parents and Patrons Program (PPP) is also available for an exclusive group of CME family and supporters. These individualized packages include access to all rehearsals, master classes, performances and group meals and activities, as well as visits to nearby palaces, museums and other popular attractions. For more information, please inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
