Mr. and Mrs. Maximilian Edelbacher were delighted by COYO’s performance last night in Vienna’s Minoritenkirche. Edelbacher is an international security expert with ACUNS, the Academic Council on United Nations System. The couple still treasures the friends they made several years ago while living in Hudson and Kent and are big fans of the Cleveland Orchestra.
Yes, that’s the Music Director of COYO’s parent orchestra, Franz Welser Most, in the background. He made a surprise appearance at Monday night’s concert and said that when COYO played Dvorak, Elgar, Wagner and Brahms, he could hear the result of the coaching they are getting from members of the Cleveland Orchestra.
