The Vienna Lights Orchestra features a world-renowned ensemble of vocals, violins and cellos. Musicians from seven different countries tour with the orchestra.

According to producer and director Steven Canyon, the Vienna Light Orchestra performs in “picturesque and historic” venues, hence the stop at the Byrd Theatre.
