Traditional and contemplative
What would Advent be without atmospheric Christmas music? For this reason, music should not be missing at an Advent market. There are also numerous Advent singing events in the region.
When dusk falls in wintry Salzburg, the heartwarming Advent concerts begin and many enthusiasts will get in the mood for the quietest time of the year with a visit to the Salzburg Advent singing. Comfortable contemplation makes the hustle and bustle of the pre-Christmas period disappear. As a music city, Salzburg is also proud that this is where the song “Silent Night!” Holy Night!
The SALZBURG ADVENT SINGING in the Great Festival Hall is the most important event in Salzburg's Advent and over the decades has developed into the second largest cultural event in the state of Salzburg. Year after year, around 200 participants in front of and behind the stage ensure a contemplative, unforgettable event that has become an integral part of Salzburg's pre-Christmas calendar. Old singing and music-making material, traditional Alpine customs as well as contemporary musical and scenic messages combine to create a harmonious overall work.
Once a year everything is a little different. Once a year when Christmas comes. The program of the original “Salzburg Advent” in the parish church of St. Andrä on Mirabellplatz ensures unforgettable and touching moments.
An evening to remember that once a year everything is different.
