A Special Event

You’re invited to join a virtual cooking class led by Verena Mösenbichler-Bryant, artistic director and conductor of the Durham Medical Orchestra. Verena, a native of Austria, will teach you via Zoom how to cook and bake traditional Austrian recipes, including Austrian Christmas cookies, schnitzel, pretzel rolls, and Kaiserschmarrn (Austrian-style shredded pancake).

This is your chance to reconnect with Verena and other orchestra musicians until we can meet in concert again. And your contribution will support the orchestra’s work, such as the virtual music projects that we’ll be sharing with you in the coming months. Seats are limited, so sign up for a class today!
