Zug, December 17, 2018. During the Salzburg Festival’s presentation of its 2019 program in Zurich last week, Solway Investment Group and the Salzburg Festival announced another year of their successful partnership. Solway Investment Group will financially support the Salzburg Festival’s Opera Camps for Children and Youths. The camps are organized in cooperation with the Vienna Philharmonic and the Salzburg Foundation of the American Austrian Foundation (AAF). In addition, Solway will continue its related fellowship program, which sponsors young talents from economically underprivileged countries.
Solway began its first year of cooperation with the Salzburg Festival in 2017 as the production sponsor of La clemenza di Tito. Both parties thoroughly enjoyed their cooperation. In 2018, to further the partnership, Solway chose to sponsor the Salzburg Festival’s Opera Camps for Children and Youths.
Commenting on continuing the successful partnership, Dan Bronstein, CEO of Solway Investment Group, explained that as a company committed to youth educational programs designed to integrate indigenous communities into modern life through the arts, involvement in a youth-oriented project was of a real value to both the Festival and the communities, which Solway serves.
Mr. Bronstein further welcomed the third year of the partnership:
“Solway is thrilled to enter into its third year of the partnership with the Salzburg Festival, and we look forward to supporting the Festival’s creative concepts, where tradition meets innovation, whilst ensuring that new generations of talents get to experience the highest quality of arts within the context of the world-renowned Salzburg Festival.”
Dr. Helga Rabl-Stadler, President of the Salzburg Festival, added:
“We are happy that Solway’s support of our successful Opera Camps has already become a tradition. I hope that in future even more countries and more Solway fellows will take part in the program, fulfilling our Founding Fathers’ vision of music and art as a powerful unifying force in our world.”
