The Vienna Philharmonic is in the news again. The ladies of the orchestra now have new concert attire – pinstriped pants and a long black blazer over a white blouse and gray gilet. According to the Associated Press, the outfit was designed by Markus Binder, a 22-year-old fashion student. There are plans to come up with something similar for the males. You can see the new outfits on television on the annual New Year’s concert. There will be four women in the orchestra. Progress is slow and steady, but progress none the less. I would certainly expect that we can see them in person with the new outfits here when the Vienna Philharmonic comes to the Rénee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall on March 3, 2011.
