Salzburg Cathedral added to the Itinerary

28 Feb

Just got the email from the Salzburg Cathedral and it looks like we’re going to be able to sing a short concert there on May 15!

The Salzburg Cathedral is a 17th century baroque cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Salzburg in the city of Salzburg, dedicated to Saint Rupert of Salzburg. Near the entrance, look for the Romanesque font at which Mozart was baptized. The great composer later served as organist here from 1779 to 1781. Some of his compositions, such as the Coronation Mass, were written for the cathedral, and many were performed here for the first time.
