Besides the University of Innsbruck, there are also other universities involved, which in return, have set up student projects to give the event that certain something extra:
The Mozarteum University Salzburg was able to win Martin Grubinger to perform at the opening ceremony with his students. Since the academic year 2018/19, Grubinger has been a university professor for classical percussion / multi-percussion at the Mozarteum University Salzburg. Martin Grubinger is one of the world's best marimba players. He performs in major concert halls and venues around the world. He has already performed at Carnegie Hall (New York), the Concertgebouw (Amsterdam), the Palais des Beaux-Arts (Brussels), the Leipziger Gewandhaus (Germany), and the Philharmonie of Cologne and Luxembourg. He has played with Rebond under Iannis Xenakis and with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra under Simone Young. Regular festival appearances include the Rheingau Music Festival, Heidelberger Frühling Festival, Bregenzer Festspiele, Beethovenfest Bonn, Lucerne Festival and Salzburg Festival, at Baden-Baden Festspielhaus, the Brass & Percussion Festival in Tokyo’s Suntory Hall and the Grant Park Music Festival in Chicago. In 2013 he was Artiste Étoile at Lucerne Festival. Grubinger caused a sensation in 2006 with a so-called percussion marathon, the Showdown at Vienna Musikverein, or with a seven-hour percussion night as part of the Beethoven Festival.
The University Mozarteum Salzburg will also take over the musical part at the Closing Ceremony. Stefan Neuner, lecturer at the Department of Music Education at the Innsbruck location of the University Mozarteum Salzburg, will perform modern jazz-pop with his students.
We are very proud that we can offer the student athletes this cultural experience and would like to take this opportunity to thank the students from all the other fields of study for their contribution.
