Important information for families & friends of the ensembles in Europe
Our aim is to provide families & friends following their ensembles independently in Europe with information which will help you to experience the SCL festival in the best possible way.
If you would like to attend the performance of a certain ensemble you can easily look up the schedule of the festival on the SCL Concerts 2022 - page.
Please see all festival inclusions in more detail below:
Generally the dress code for all events differs according to the venue.
Opening Ceremony in St. Stephen's Cathedral: As St. Stephen's Cathedral is a church, clothing should be chosen accordingly (e.g. no shorts or strapless tops).
Conductor's Dinner: No dress code applies. As the conductors' meeting takes place immediately after the opening ceremony, no change of clothes is possible or required.
Gala Winners' Concert in the Musikverein: The Musikverein does not officially require a certain dress code. Considering the festive occasion, we would however suggest smart casual (no shorts, t-shirts). Suits and evening gowns are not required but are also appropriate. Overcoats, bags, rucksacks and umbrellas must be left at the Musikverein cloakrooms for security reasons.
Farewell / Closing Ceremony: See Musikverein. No change of clothes required.
All other events: For all other events and venues no dress code applies.
