Vienna is bathed in sunshine as the members of the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra journey here by tour bus.

They are scheduled to arrive late this afternoon from Prague with a stop at the Zentralfriedhof, the Viennese cemetery where Schubert, Johann Strauss, Jr., Beethoven, and Brahms are buried.

This city is all about classical music. When I arrived at the airport I was amused to see the entire libretto and score of Franz Lehar’s The Merry Widow engraved on a wall.

The young musicians should be merry at this moment, coming off their triumph in Prague. The first concert of their first international tour was a smash hit with seven curtain calls.
