Ether Game

Capital Idea

Ether Game asks: can you name this tune? Where does it transport you to?

It would be a “capitol” idea to visit this city! Our composer was sometimes better appreciated here than in his native Vienna, and some of his operas were premiered here. Discover the solution to this puzzle on Ether Game, Tuesday evenings at 8. For more musical fun and frustration, check our website at wfiu dot o-r-g slash ether game.
