Greeting from Michael Berger-Sandhofer, President of the Association of Patrons of the Salzburg Easter Festival
It is with a great sense of joy and gratitude that we now look back on the 2017 Easter Festival, whose 50th anniversary we celebrated in truly festive style. The re-creation of Die Walküre was just one of many highpoints. Our expectations were more than just met: they were greatly exceeded.
I am especially proud of the excellent financial result of our Association, for our income was considerably higher than anticipated. Since my election as President in 2011, we have even been able to triple our revenue. With your generous membership dues and donations, you have all made a contribution to the great success of the 2017 Easter Festival.
With such support from you, I am looking forward to the coming years, and would once again like to express my warm thanks for your valuable patronage.
