Music History Field-Trip

The fifth graders have been studying music history this year in Music Class. After learning about some of the great European composers, Miss Altstaetter took the class on a tour of music history sights throughout Vienna. We saw the outside of several apartments Mozart lived in and then toured the inside of an apartment Beethoven lived in. We also saw two beautiful pipe organs in St. Stephens Cathedral.

The class posed for a picture in front of a Mozart statue in the Berg Garden. On the backside of this statue is a carved picture of young Mozart and his sister Nannerl on tour with their father.

We ended our field-trip with ice-cream bars for everyone! What a great Friday afternoon away from school!
