Where to stay

Our excellent contacts in Salzburgerland mean we can accommodate groups in both central Salzburg and surrounding areas, depending on your needs and budget.

Festival Ideas

Choirs can take part in the annual Bischofshofener Musiktage, which take place end of July – mid August.

Concerts

Salzburgerland offers fantastic venues and performance opportunities for all ensemble types. Most small towns, such as St Wolfgang and St Gilgen, have covered music pavilions which are suitable for some of the larger symphonic wind bands and even small orchestras. We work closely with some of the picturesque churches in the small Alpine villages, such as Flachau, where a warm welcome is assured. An impromptu recital may be given by choirs with a sacred repertoire in Salzburg cathedral, while the Mirabell Gardens give bands the opportunity to perform in this grand and beautiful city.

Music festival opportunity

Come and sing in the… Advent Festival Salzburg- (24th November - 17th December 2017)

On the first afternoon of this wonderful choir festival, choirs will perform at the traditional Christmas Market at the steps of the cathedral or on the stage in front of the Castle Hellbrunn. On the following evening, you will perform together with another guest choir and a choir from Salzburg at an Advent concert in a church in Salzburg or in the surrounding area. There’ll be lots of mulled wine and time to explore this beautiful city.
