2020 is a special year for ISAPS – we’re celebrating our 50th Anniversary in Vienna! But we aren’t the only ones with a big birthday coming up. Next year, the Austrian capital will present Beethoven Year 2020 in honor of acclaimed composer Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th birthday, making Vienna the perfect city to host the ISAPS World Congress. ISAPS highlights some of the unique activities being offered throughout the city in Beethoven Year 2020.

Vienna’s culture is largely musical, having been Beethoven’s chosen home for 35 years. In Beethoven Year 2020, the city will showcase more of Beethoven’s music than ever before. Witness a performance of Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio, at the Vienna State Opera or the Theater an der Wien, and hear his classic works live in concerts at the Musikverein and the Wiener Konzerthaus. To learn more about Beethoven’s life, works, and personality, visit some of the many Beethoven exhibits that will take place in 2020. Special exhibitions providing an inside look at Beethoven’s life and genius will be held at various locations throughout the city, including the Austrian National Library and the House of Music.

Join ISAPS in Vienna 2020 and take part in two of the biggest events of the year!
