The Salzburg Cultural Association (Salzburger Kulturvereinigung) is responsible for a considerable part of the symphonic musical life of the city through its year-round activities and is the only organisation to invite international orchestras to the main venue of the Salzburg Festival – the Großes Festspielhaus (Great Festival Hall) – even outside festival hours.
In the 2020/21 season's programme you find great international artists such as Jan Lisiecki, Elisabeth Kulman, Leila Josefowicz, Baiba Skride, Nikolaus Habjan, Daniel Lozakovich, Benjamin Schmid, Silver-Garburg, Iván Fischer, Alain Altinoglu, Neeme Järvi, Krzysztof Urbański, Matthew Halls, Constantin Trinks, Leo McFall, François Leleux, and top orchestras from Austria, Germany, Hungary, Belgium, Estonia and the Czech Republic such as the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg, Symphony Orchestra Vorarlberg, SWR Symphony Orchestra, Dresden Philharmonic, Budapest Festival Orchestra, Estonian National Symphony Orchestra, Brno Philharmonic and Belgian National Orchestra.
The concert season includes a cycle of 9 subscription concerts in the Großes Festspielhaus, the Salzburger Kulturtage – the Music Festival in Autumn at different venues, the Carnival matinee and soiree in the Großer Saal of the Mozarteum Foundation and the concerts at the turn of the year with the New Year’s Eve Gala Concerts and three New Year's Concerts in the Großes Festspielhaus.
The concerts, the heart of the Salzburger Kulturvereinigung, are reinforced by additional music mediation formats.
The cultural association would like to cordially invite all concert visitors, young, old, new or experienced, to engage in music outside the concert hall.
In addition to the concert programme, the Salzburg Cultural Association is also responsible for the Georg Trakl Research and Memorial Site and the International Trakl Forum, as well as the Salzburg Street Theatre
We would be delighted if you would accept our wide range of music and recommend it to others!
