The Salzburg Institute Chamber Music Concert Series is organized by Prof. Dr. h.c. Stan Ford, Professor of Piano at Mozarteum University and the Salzburg Institute’s Artist-in-Residence. The Series supports Salzburg-based charities.
“The Festival has established itself firmly as one of the country’s foremost cultural events. Now among the most important chamber music series in Austria, it has acquired a devoted following of music lovers and enthusiasts, drawn by a combination of features: the high calibre of the artists, the quality of their performances, the imaginative programming to make the row of concerts a uniquely enjoyable experience.” Prof. Dr. h.c.

The Concert Series has raised money for Salzburg-based charities including the Salzburg Children’s Cancer Fund and “Kinderseelenhilfe,” which assists children and teenagers with mental disorders. In 2016, all proceeds went to the Verein menschen.leben, a Salzburg-based organization that supports children and young adults who are victims of war and displacement.
