"I recall sitting in the first row as a seven-year-old when my father first took me to the Musikverein to hear the Orchestra. I play no instrument but have always enjoyed letting my thoughts roam listening to the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and embracing its flow. At the Vienna Philharmonic Society I am excited to be back in the first row helping bring Vienna’s greatest music to New York." ~ Max Jahn
