Some (of many more!) musical offerings in Graz (pending ongoing COVID-19 restrictions)

The Graz Opera House, the second largest of its kind in Austria, regularly provides a stage for various cultural productions ranging from ballet to musical theatre (https://oper-graz.buehnen-graz.com/). Philharmonic- and chamber-music orchestras can often be heard at the Musikverein Steiermark/Graz (https://musikverein-graz.at/). Graz has also become known for its lively jazz scene (https://www.grazjazz.at/). Weekly events are held at places such as Stockwerk on Jakominiplatz (http://www.stockwerkjazz.mur.at/) or Miles Jazz Bar just off Mariahilferplatz (https://www.milesjazz.at/). Styrian folk music can often be heard on a Thursday at the informal Musikstammtisch im Steirer-Pub around the corner from Glockenspielplatz (https://steirerpub.at/), while the Graz Irish-music community meets every Wednesday (from 9pm onwards) for their session at the Dublin Road Irish Pub across the street (https://www.thedublinroad.at/).

A tip for all those interested in Austrian folk culture:

The annual Aufsteirern Festival (https://www.aufsteirern.at/), one of the biggest events celebrating folk culture, music and dance in Austria, takes place in Graz from 16 – 18 September 2022 (the weekend following the 2022 ESEM Meeting).
