University of Virginia
Vienna - Music

Hello! I am currently in my second year at the University of Virginia, studying Economics and Music. I’ve decided to take a semester to study music in what is quite possibly the best place in the world to do it – Vienna, Austria. I have been playing the French horn for ten years, but I can’t wait for the new experiences Vienna will bring me, and to document and share all my adventures!

As part of the World Heritage Tour set up by IES Abroad Vienna, we spent half a day in Hallstatt. Although the trip was very brief, it was one of my favorite segments of the whole five-day tour. First of all, even the drive to Hallstatt is incredible.

What I probably love the most about Vienna is how peaceful it is. I revel in the fact that I can go out into the first district and enjoy the bustle of city life without being overwhelmed by the sound of car horns and people yelling over each other.

Going into the IES Abroad Vienna program, I am ignorant of most things.
