A word from the President

The Friends of Viennese Ball Music are committed to promoting cultural exchange between the cities of Vienna and Geneva, in particular by organizing cultural and musical events and in particular a Ball in the Viennese tradition. I am all the more pleased that this initiative was realized for the first time in the Art of Geneva on June 6, 2019 in the salons of the Ritz-Carlton, Hotel de la Paix, as I myself am originally from Vienna and Geneva by adoption.

A Viennese Ball in Geneva allows to link these two important UN capitals through the Geneva heritage and the Viennese tradition in a spirit of openness and friendship.

It is therefore with great joy that we can welcome this initiative.
