Salzburg, Austria: 50 years of the Sound of Music

There is no doubt that the Austrian city of Salzburg is synonymous with sound. The much loved "The Sound of Music", based on the life of the Austrian Trapp family rings in its 50th anniversary in 2015. First screened in 1965, and awarded five Oscars, the movie remains one of the three most repeatedly screened films in history. Salzburg is also the birthplace of composer Wolfgang Mozart, and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed city, which has a population of just 150,000, stages some 4,200 concerts a year, morning, noon and night.
