Today is the final day of the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra’s European tour.

It’s the first international trip in the ensemble’s 26-year history and it’s met high expectations both in audience response and its effect on the young musicians. 

WKSU’s Vivian Goodman has been following the tour:

The Turnerwirt Hotel where the students are staying is family-owned and operated. It's picturesque but there is no air conditioning and it's 101 degrees outside.
A poster for tonight's concert is on the bulletin board of the hotel lobby.
The most tourist-jammed street in Salzburg is Getreidegasse, where Mozart was born.
Members of COYO listen as a tour guide explains they have to be careful inside Mozart's birthplace because the ceilings are quite low.
Tourists flock to Getreidenstrasse 9. Just a few steps away is another museum in a house where Mozart lived as an adult.

WKSU’s Vivian  Goodman has accompanied Cleveland’s Youth Orchestra on its first European tour.

After tonight's concert at the Mozarteum, the young players plan a private dinner at one of the many elegant  restaurants in Salzburg.  This one has a spectacular views of the hills that ‘come alive with the sound of music.’
