Much praise for a special kind of "circle of friends"!

Founded in 1984, the “Friends of the Salzburg Advent Singing” association now has around 800 members and supporters, who demonstrate their extraordinary solidarity with the Salzburg Advent Singing. And the friendship does not stop at the gates of Salzburg. A third of the “friends” come from Austria and around two thirds from Germany. The friends’ association even has a small following in Switzerland and Lichtenstein.

a vital event

Sunday - matinee in the Großes Festspielhaus

In December 1990, on the occasion of the 70th birthday of Prof. Wilhelm Keller, the long-time composer of the Salzburg Advent Singing, the association presented all “friends” with a gift of special quality for the first time. Wilhelm Keller’s Christmas oratorio “Adventus Domini” was premiered in the Grosses Festspielhaus as part of an Advent Singing matinee.

Since then, the Salzburg Advent Singing has been inviting audiences to a matinee in the Grosses Festspielhaus every year on the first Sunday in Advent – exclusively and free of charge for Advent Singing fans. A very special, in-depth introduction to the work with performers and an unforgettable look behind the scenes!
