Salzburg Festival
The Salzburg Festival was founded by composer Richard Strauss, poet and dramatist Hugo von
Hofmannsthal, and director Max Reinhardt, on August 22, 1920. Nestled in the princely baroque
town of Salzburg, far from the everyday bustle of the big cities, the Salzburg Festival was immediately recognized as a major destination by the world’s foremost directors and artists.

Salzburg Festival Society
The Salzburg Festival Society’s mission is to serve as the liaison between the Salzburg Festival and its American friends and patrons, providing members with exclusive access to events and services related to the Festival. The Society is proud to support artistic excellence and innovation in partnership with the Salzburg Festival. The Salzburg Festival Society was founded in 2005 by Gerhard Andlinger, John French III and Isabelle Harnoncourt.
