Sacred Festivals

You don’t only encounter sacred music in Salzburg in the form of church masses or concert series. Small-though-exquisite festivals combine choral concerts with instrumental recitals and unique performance locations.

“Kirchenmusikalischer Herbst”

Audiences are invited into Salzburg’s churches to attend a variety-filled program of concerts,  choral performances as well as presentations of biblical and spiritual texts. Entrance is free.

“Klangfarben der Orgel”

During the days of summer and autumn, the parish church of St. Andrew’s invites the public to enjoy organ recitals featuring renowned musicians. One special aspect is that live video of the organist up in the organ loft is shown to audiences in the main nave of the church.

International Salzburg Organ Concerts

In the summer months, the Franciscan Church in the Salzburg historical district becomes the stage for recitals highlighting the unique tonality of the organ. The “Marien Orgel”, an organ that was built in 1989, is generally regarded by experts as one of the finest in all of Austria.
