Tonkunstler's principal venues, where the orchestra opens the summer season with the prestigious Midsummer Night's Gala. As Grafenegg's Orchestra in Residence, they play a substantial role in the festival's programme and act as mentors to the young musicians of Campus Grafenegg.

With residencies in the Musikverein and Festspielhaus St. Pölten and a busy touring schedule, the orchestra is considered to be one of Austria's most important musical institutions. Yutaka Sado, one of the most distinguished Japanese conductors of our time, is the orchestra's Music Director.

From Beethoven’s «Coriolanus» overture in the Castle Courtyard in 1973 to the premiere of a fanfare by French composer Philippe Manoury in 2023: the Tonkunstler Orchestra has been coming to Grafenegg for 50 years.
