As some of you may know I play trumpet in my high school’s band and we recently took a trip to Austria! Austria is famous for being the birthplace of Mozart, an important part of music history!
I had an amazing time, we visited Salzburg as well as Vienna (the capital city). I love to travel and have been to many places however this was my first time to Europe and I would definitely go back 🙂
My favourite part of the trip was visiting the KREMS music school in Melk where we got to spend the day with high school students from Austria and played music all day it was amazing. That night we got to sleep in a castle which was completely mind blowing, definitely felt like royalty.
While we were there we also got to tour around and see various places that were filmed in “The Sound of Music”! So cool! My favourite was getting to see the gazebo where they sang “16 going on 17”. My band was able to perform in many different venues throughout Austria including a church and the ‘Haus der Musik’. It was an amazing experience. I met tons of friendly people that made my stay very enjoyable.
I firmly believe that everyone should get the opportunity to travel, it is important to see the world and experience new cultures.
