We had a wonderful time watching the Classic Ensemble Vienna in St. Peter's Church in the heart of Vienna's Old Town. The staff and personnel are indeed accommodating especially in dealing with our two kids in tow (one is age 7 years and the other is 2 years old). The ensemble opened the set with my all-time favorite, Mozart's Divertimento in F Major (Allegro). Indeed a night to remember with my family!

Loved this concert, beautiful music in beautiful surroundings. Sat in the middle part of the church, it was lovely.
