The first annual Summa Cum Laude International Youth Music Festival was hosted by VIA MUSICA (Vienna International Association for Music and Culture Exchange) in July 2007. Already during its first year, Vienna's new global festival realized its two main objectives: to provide a unique platform for the world's most talented youth choirs, bands and orchestras to perform in Vienna's magnificent Musikverein and to set new standards in the festival arena.
