Becoming a member of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde has always been something special. Feelings of belonging and participating, identification and love for a shared interest were all reasons for the creation of the society more than 200 years ago. They remain defining themes today. The Musikverein connects people who share not only an interest but also an ideal. It is this that brings them together as “supporting members”, as defined in the society’s founding statutes. 

This is the foundation upon which the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna has built a world-class institution. The benefits of this achievement are passed on by the Musikverein to its current members in the form of outstanding service and special reductions. Thus both the idealistic founding principle of the organisation and the modern aspect of service provision come together with a particular focus upon the members themselves.

Alongside the traditional options of either regular membership or youth membership of the Musikverein, there are now other forms of involvement that take the supportive aspects of membership a step further. As a Musikverein Supporter, Sponsor or Patron, you can enjoy additional, personal and tailor-made advantages. These go above and beyond the palette of benefits and reductions available to regular members. They have been designed to recognise and reward particularly generous forms of support through exclusive offers. We will be delighted to discuss these with you in more details through direct contact with the Musikverein Director’s Office. We are happy to set up whichever form of support you choose to give to the Musikverein and look forward to establishing new connections. It has indeed always been something special to be a member of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna.
