It is quite possible you’ve never experienced sweeping Christmas melodies quite like this. Over two thousand flickering candles illuminate the performers while the VIENNA LIGHT ORCHESTRA presents a collection of Christmas Favorites over the course of 60 mesmerizing minutes.


Every concert is a delightful experience, and I believe there is no greater enjoyment than the freedom of expression for a musician and audience.

“The Vienna Light Orchestra was created as a way to illuminate the world of orchestral music in a new light. You know how some people are so intimidated by orchestral music that they stay away? With us, things are different. The Vienna Light Orchestra has youthful, excited musicians who perform from their hearts — and touch hearts every evening. You’ll see us having fun with the audience, clapping, laughing and swaying with songs that are filled with so much joy.” — The Director

From the founder of Vienna Light Orchestra…

“When I was a teenager I wrote a song called Eternal Love. I was spellbound by the sweeping melodies that came flooding through the piano, which has become the rhythm of my life. Today, I’m thrilled to bring a lot of the worlds most beloved music to audiences everywhere. My dream is to help make the entirety of orchestral music enjoyable, fresh and delightful for everyone!”


The year is has become one of the most successful years for the Vienna Light Orchestra. They had already visited Europe, the Baltics, North America and South America, and that was just the beginning! The Vienna Light Orchestra players believe that music connects the world as OneLove, OneHeart and OneSoul — bound together by the JOY of MUSIC.
