Gustav Mahler youth orchestra

The Group’s involvement is aimed at giving artists more freedom to develop artistically, thereby making a contribution to cultural life in Austria and the CEE region. The support provided to the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra is an example in this area. It is a place of learning for talented European orchestral musicians and helps young Austrian musicians play music with their colleagues from all over Europe, traditionally including many from Central and Eastern Europe. The orchestra offers highly talented musicians up to the age of 26 the opportunity to work together with the great conductors and soloists of our time. This allows prospective professional musicians to gain experience that is critical for their musical development and future careers. VIG Holding feels that arts and culture make an important contribution to a society’s quality of life and has therefore provided support to the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra for many years.
