Donations can be made by the following ways:
- clicking our donation button on homepage on the website,
- cash at the door,
- via QR link scan at the door
As you know there is a limited space in the main hall (40 seats) and 20 seats in the small hall where you can follow the live stream on a screen. We have over 40 players/students/artists so we count on your cooperation to give each others also the opportunity to see a live presentation. PLease don’t occupy the same seat during the whole festival.
In this form you confirm your presence, and can give your preference for a seat in the main hall during concerts. As said before it’s no guarantee, we will make a selection! If you can see the concert of Wiener Choro klub on saturday it would be nice if on sunday you take the “screen” seat in the small hall.
We hope for your understanding!
