A Floating Music Festival Journey by River Ship
October 16 - 26, 2020
Join friends and fans of Minnesota Public Radio and the Minnesota Orchestra for a historic cruise down the Blue Danube with host Brian Newhouse. Discover world class museums, grand opera houses and celebrated symphony halls of Budapest, Bratislava, Salzburg, Vienna, and Prague! Your journey begins with three included pre-cruise nights in historic Prague. Walk in the footsteps of Dvorak, Smetana and Mozart while in the Czech capital. In Vienna, we’ll celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday, savor Sachertorte in a local café, spend time in one of the many marvelous museums and dine with the locals in a charming wine cellar frequented by the great composers. Enjoy backstage tours and insider experiences. Visit the homes of Liszt, Mozart and Beethoven. Musicians from the Minnesota Orchestra will join us for intimate recitals aboard our privately chartered ship, the luxurious Scenic Ruby.
