Salzburg is a city known worldwide for its music. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, one of Austria’s greatest sons, was born here in 1756, and many great masters of the Classical Era lived and worked here as well. Salzburg’s orchestras and choirs carry on these great musical traditions on the stages and in the concert halls of the city today.
We invite you to share in celebrating these rich musical and cultural traditions by bringing your choir or orchestra to Salzburg for the International Cantus Music and Culture Festival Salzburg. Musicians from around the world come to Salzburg each July to perform together and individually in prestigious venues such as Salzburg Cathedral and the Mozarteum. Among the highlights of the festival are the ecumenical celebration in Salzburg Cathedral and the performance of "Song of Peace," shared by all festival choirs in the Mozarteum.
In addition to singing in these beautiful and historic venues, there will also be plenty of opportunity to sample Salzburg’s famous Mozart chocolates and enjoy the old-world atmosphere of its coffeehouses!
