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.
The 2019/20 season's programme bears the signature of the new artistic director of the Salzburg Cultural Association, Thomas Heißbauer, for the first time. Look forward to artists such as Elisabeth Leonskaja, Willi Resetarits, Martin Grubinger, Renaud Capuçon, Julia Fischer, Claire Huangci, Dimitri Kitajenko, Philippe Jordan and top orchestras from Austria, Germany, Croatia, Scotland, Iceland, France and Spain, such as the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, the Bruckner Orchestra Linz, Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg, Konzerthausorchester Berlin, Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Iceland Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine, Orchestre National de France and the Real Filharmonía de Galicia.
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 Faschingsmatinee 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 in the Große Universitätsaula 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!
