Dear Friends,

I am very honored to be President of the American Friends of the Salzburg Easter Festival during the jubilee season celebrating 50 years since it's foundation. As you know it will be a very special Festival this year with two additional concerts, one by the Vienna Philharmonic and the other by the Berliner Philharmoniker. In addition, the sets for the opera Die Walküre designed by Günther Schneider-Siemssen fifty years ago will be reproduced. The program is spectacular and I look forward to spending a glorious week with you.

I am delighted that we will be welcoming new American Friends this year and I look forward to greeting you in Salzburg. I am very grateful to our Board for their support and encouragement throughout this past year. As you know, a supportive board is essential in accomplishing our mission.

In conclusion, I wish to remind everyone of the mission of the organization: to support and promote the Festival wherever your home may be. I hope that you will continue to attend the Festival and support the artistry that is featured there.

I look forward to seeing you in Salzburg.

With much appreciation,


Cynthia D. Sculco
