In 2015 we hosted a party to the world famous Salzburg Music Festival. The programme included 3 premiere operas and a classic concert over 3 consecutive days, hosted drinks receptions and dinners. Central accommodation in the heart of Salzburg meant everywhere could be easily accessed on foot and experience the atmosphere of the Festival in full swing.
On 1 May 1816 the Bavarian coats of arms was replaced with the Austrian double eagle on the Residenz and Salzburg became a part of Austria. In 1825 Franz Schubert remarked on Salzburg ‘There are many beautiful streets and squares in the town, but grass is growing in all of them, so little are they used’. It was around this time that a group of local burghers decided to restore Salzburg’s standing and affluence through art and culture. From this stance the Salzburg Festival was founded in 1920.
Salzburg always delivers le crème de la crème – World class opera singers, maestros of the podium, the greatest orchestras in the World, lavish productions and acoustically near-perfect auditoriums, fine cuisine, champagne bars …. We hosted parties to the Festival 1990-2000 and again in 2015 & 2016.
