The VBW Orchestra
FIRST CLASS PERFORMANCES EVERY NIGHT
In 1965 the THEATER AN DER WIEN orchestra was created and soon established itself as an essential component in Vienna’s ever-increasing importance as the musical metropolis of the German-speaking world. Today’s VBW Orchestra was founded in 1987 when the Theater an der Wien and Raimund Theater orchestras merged. It consists of 84 instrumentalists from a wide range of genres, who over the last ten decades have grown into a unified and highly respected musical ensemble. The orchestra not only gives first class performances of musicals in VBW theatres on a nightly basis, its exceptionally high standard means it is also in demand for jazz and big band concerts, as well as performing film scores, operettas and modern chamber operas, along with numerous concert tours both in Austria and abroad.
