Best of Elora and Oliver Concert

Elora and Oliver planned a concert and chose to invite our friends, Elder and Sister Green, who are on a mission here in Vienna. They will be heading home in a couple of weeks so we were excited to have them over. Elora and Oliver have been planning their concert all week. They chose songs,…

Lindsey Stirling Concert

We surprised the kids with tickets to a Lindsey Stirling concert! Elora loves Lindsey Stirling and has watched all of her youtube videos. We didn’t tell them where we were going until it was time to leave and then we handed them the tickets… That is one excited little girl! We had a little time…

Oliver’s family concert

The kids like to perform little concerts for the family. Often they insist we record them. Oliver especially enjoys outlining the program. Elora transposed her piano song, “There is a Green Hill Far Away” into notes she could play on her bird flute she got at the knight festival. Elora also loves to compose her…

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir at the Musikverein

Our kids all love to listen to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. It’s practically background music to their lives. Before Oliver could even speak in sentences, he was singing along to Motab. So when we heard that the 360 person Choir and Orchestra at Temple  Square was going to play in the world famous Vienna Musikverein, we…

Long Night of the Churches

Vienna Philharmonic Sommer Nacht Konzert

Every year the Vienna Philharmonic puts on a free concert at the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna. This year it drew 100,000 people. We decided to get their early and try to hear the concert from up on the hill. We have seen people sit up there in the past and figured this way we could bring…

Apple Festival – Mark Abernathy Concert

Friday night before the Apple Festival, I organized a concert that I was super excited about. Mark Abernathy has a band that I love and I have his CD and listen to it all the time, so I told Chris I thought it would be super cool and amazing if Mark could come play at…

Vienna Philharmonic Free Concert

These pictures are from June. I kept waiting until we had the video we took to upload, but that just kept being put off… so finally, we decided to go on a date since we haven’t done that in awhile, and when the new baby comes that will just make it even more difficult to…

Free Music Concerts…

So apparently all over the city this summer, there will be outdoor concerts. Some are free, some are not, but we accidently came across this one at Karlsplatz on the way home from church, and it was great fun! Elora got a free balloon, and loved hearing the music. I hope we can stumble across…
