Audi and the Salzburg Festival 20 years of strong partnership

Audi and classical music – a long-standing and fruitful combination. Whether in Salzburg or Schleswig-Holstein, world-famous festivals are built upon a strong partnership with Audi. Audi also possesses extensive festival know-how as as an event organizer, as has been demonstrated since 1990 with the Audi Summer Concerts. But music is not limited to just large festival stages – it is also supported among employees. The employee orchestra known as the Audi Philharmonic Wind Orchestra has existed since 1962. And the Audi Youth Choir Academy was founded in 2007 to enable today’s young talent to develop into the stars of tomorrow.
