We have the great honour to announce that the Diocesan Classical Gymnasium alumna Petra Kovačič from Tolmin won the first violin tutti audition in Vienna on 18th December 2015. This time all four candidates to make it to the final round were women and Petra is the fifth woman to be admitted to the Vienna Philharmonic since the start of this month. »The times may be a-changing.«, commented Slipped Disc, the world’s most-read cultural website.
Congratulations Petra! You have come a long way!
