Salzburg Performing Arts
Before you arrive in Salzburg, do some advance research to determine the city's music schedule for the time you will be there, and make reservations; if you'll be attending the summer Salzburg Festival, this is a must. After you arrive in the city, any office of the Salzburg Tourist Office and most hotel concierge desks can provide you with schedules for all the arts performances held year-round
in Salzburg, and you can find listings in the daily newspaper, Salzburger Nachrichten.
The Advent season transforms this picture-perfect city into an even more magical wonderland. Music fills the streets of the Old City during the Christmas markets. Warm up with a cup of Glühwein (mulled wine) from one of the numerous wooden stands and find the nearest festively attired brass ensemble for a lovely free concert.
To experience a true local tradition, get tickets to one of several Adventsingen performances. Folk singers, choral ensembles, children's choirs, traditional instrument ensembles, and actors weave music and theater into the Advent season. The stories and songs are typically in local dialect, which can be difficult for even High German speakers to understand, but the atmosphere and experience are worth it.
The spiritual surroundings of the St. Andrew's Church on Mirabell Square offer the perfect atmosphere for the performances by Salzburger Advent (www.salzburgeradvent.at). Salzburg Advent Singing (www.salzburgeradventsingen.at) in the Great Festival Hall is the largest event of the season.
