Eisenstadt Classical Music Festival
August 4 - 16

Since 1975, instrumental and vocal performers have been making a musical pilgrimage to Eisenstadt and Vienna, Austria to attend the Classical Music Festival. Make this year the summer for your unforgettable experience as a participant in one of Austria's longest-running and most successful summer music programs.

Under the direction of artistic director and conductor, Dr. Richard Zielinski, participants will have the unique opportunity to study and perform in the same setting that fostered the genius of Joseph Haydn, Beethoven, Mozart and others – in amazing venues like St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna, Bergkirche in Eisenstadt, and the Esterházy Palace, considered one of the great historic and acoustically perfect concert halls in Europe. Recitals, lectures, tours and sightseeing designed to enhance participants' knowledge of Austrian culture will complement the busy two-week schedule.
