This festival has a 90 year old tradition of bringing the best of opera, drama and classical concerts to the visitors of the placid city of Salzburg, Austria which also was the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Besides the beautiful music, the festival’s surrounding is worth a visit anytime. The ‘Old Town’ of Salzburg with its famous baroque architecture is one of the best-preserved city centres north of the Alps.
The opening party of the Salzburg Festival was on 25th of July and it ends August 30th with lots and lots of cultural performances and happenings inbetween. The Vienna Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic, Camerata Salzburg, Mozart Matinées and Chamber Concerts are only a drop in the ocean when it comes to line up.
Classic FM is broadcasting classical music in a popular and accessible style.

So just by tuning into this station, you do good already!
