Anger as Vienna Philharmonic players jump the vaccination queuemain
Vienna’s theatre sector has attacked the vaccination of 95 Vienna Philharmonic players last week as a ‘slap in the face’ for other arts.
The City of Vienna said the musicians were put at th front of the queue in order to enable them to fulfil international engagements. The orchestra cited ‘different playing commitments’ which require a vaccination.
The atmosphere in Vienna is ungenerous at present.
