Kirchklang (Church Sound) Festival 2022

The high-quality music festival in the scenic and historically influenced cultural area in the heart of Austria is unique with its focus on the entire region and its intensive dialogue with it. Let yourself be seduced around the deepest lakes of our country and immerse yourself in music - in the most beautiful places of a region that, from early on attracted numerous composers, inspired them with its spectacular mountain panoramas and quiet lakes and to this day has lost none of its fascination.

Impressive Venues

We look forward to your concert visit and invite you this time to a musical listening pleasure with the following artists:

Konradfest - Church Service

From 1988 to 2005, the KONRADFEST, which took place every year at the beginning of August and was initiated by the painter Lydia Roppolt, was a highly regarded center of new sacred music. Important composers created new works especially for St. Konrad. In 2021 the Konradfest was revived as part of the Kirchklang Festival. In 2022, several completely new works are on the program: the Upper Austrian universal musician Tanja Elisa Glinsner created four compositions based on poems by Elisabeth Meinhard and Else Lasker-Schüler, which will be performed in the festival service; in the afternoon concert you will hear a work by the Mondsee composer Marco Lemke.

Admission to the service is free!
