The motto of the Festival, which refers to the compositional work of Mozart and Beethoven, »Resistance. Resurgance. Renewal« had taken on a completely new relevance under the changed circumstances. Thanks to the strong support of the partners from the city, state, the Friends association and sponsors, it was possible to bring live music to the people for three weeks despite the difficult planning framework and without large proceeds. In this way, Würzburg has set an important signal in the nationwide festival landscape for the continuation in times of crisis and the growth in the collapse of the familiar. In its almost 100-year history, the Mozartfest has shown its profile several times.
The current situation is hitting the arts and culture sector particularly hard. We are thankful for your donation, which will benefit the Mozartfest Würzburg and the artists. Thank you very much for your support!
The Würzburg Residenz, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, churches, monasteries, wineries, palace gardens or industrial monuments are the stages for a multi-faceted cornucopia of events in which the focus is on shared appreciation and exploring aural sublimities.
