Salzburg Celebration

Salzburg, Austria

Since 1960, the Salzburg Semester has been a hallmark of the University of Redlands experience. With an emphasis on community living and extensive travel opportunities, this interdisciplinary program has introduced generations of Redlands students to core issues in European history, politics and society while also exposing students to the art and music for which Salzburg is renowned.

Join us on campus May 13 – 14, 2011 to commemorate 50 years of the Salzburg Semester.  The weekend celebration will include the sing-along version of "The Sound of Music," traditional food and drink, music, special guests, a festive bier garten, and plenty of time to reminisce about your days spent in beautiful Salzburg.
