Dear Bill,
I have the distinct pleasure of being artistic director for the 2016 „Salzburger Kammermusik Konzerte“ (Salzburg Chamber Music Concerts) which will take place in the enchanting city of Salzburg, Austria, beginning on July 13th till the 7th of August. Hope you will have time to share this news with your newsletter community and encourage them to join us in an exciting season with extraordinary artists from all over the world. You can find out more about series on the following Web Site:     Thanks for your support.

Message from the Artistic Director

After such a successful 2015 season, it is a great pleasure for me, as Artistic Director of this Chamber Music Series, to welcome and extend greetings to everyone attending this year’s Festival. I am delighted to announce the new concert season which will commence with a rich and varied repertoire in collaboration with top artists from Austria and abroad.

The Festival has established itself firmly as one of the country’s foremost cultural events. Now among the most important chamber music series in Austria, it has acquired a devoted following of music lovers and enthusiasts, drawn by a combination of features: the high calibre of the artists, the quality of their performances, the imaginative programming to make the row of concerts a uniquely enjoyable experience.

I wish to express my deepest gratitude to all, particularly the artists, who have volunteered their time and imaginative collaboration to produce yet another remarkable program, one designed to satisfy the most discerning of music lovers, while introducing new elements to keep the spirit of the series fresh and vigorous and, through these innovations, to attract new audiences to understand and appreciate the very special appeal of chamber music.

A special note, I would like to put our benefit project on your hearts: In times like these, many people have to leave their home, and it is especially difficult for children and young people who come to us alone because of war and displacement. The association menschen.leben e.V. provides a home, security and a perspective with their project „Hayat Salzburg“. Your generous donations support their efforts. All artists have waived their fee, so that all donations benefit this important cause.

To all associated with the Salzburg International Chamber Music Concerts; and to all those attending, listening to or participating in the 2016 Series, enjoy the experience and we welcome you back to a truly remarkable season.

With best wishes,

Univ.-Prof. Mag. Dr. Stan Ford
