Greeting from Michael Berger-Sandhofer, President of the Association of Patrons of the Salzburg Easter Festival
we are now embarking on a new season – and in 2019, once again, the centrepiece will be an opera by Richard Wagner. There is surely no conductor active today who has become so intimately associated with Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg as has Christian Thielemann. The financial support offered by the Association of Patrons continues to ensure that such top-level performances remain possible at the Salzburg Easter Festival. I am especially delighted that the number of Gold Members increased considerably again last year.
As President of the Association of Patrons, and in the name of our Committee, I should like to thank all our members for their loyalty and commitment. We naturally welcome all our new Patrons to our Festival family in Salzburg, and thank them for their support.
