The International Choral Festival “Meet Mozart” combined with the “International Festival of Song, Music and Culture”, which has existed since 2015, takes place in the large hall of the Mozart Foundation, which is also the venue for the “Salzburg Festival“.

This cultural and musical festival is open to all choirs of all categories, as well as to other ensembles: folk dance groups with live music, orchestras and other musical groups (jazz band, brass band). The repertoire is free, all styles of music are allowed and there is no compulsory piece.
