    We are fast approaching this year's annual summer concert of the Vienna Philharmonic. This year the the Vienna Philharmonic will take place on May 30 (8 days to go). By the way, the Vienna Philharmonic will be a free summer concert and it will be hosted at at the Schonbrunn Palace Gardens.

    that's what makes the Vienna Philharmonic so unique in that they play this concert with free admission. Btw, this years summer program is entirely dedicated to Wagner and Verdi - they would both have celebrated their 200th birthday this year.

    here it's my 2 cents about the philharmonica: since admission is free you can expect loads of people showing up, which is why is wise to show up there before 8pm because otherwise it's almost impossible to get a good place as close to the stage.
