What special events will there be on Xmas or Xmas eve

My wife and I will arrive Dec. 23 and stay through the 27th. I'm wondering if there are any special events - concerts, markets, shows, to celebrate the date. I remember a choir show in Salzburg a few years ago that we chanced upon on Xmas eve and it was beautiful; I'm trying to plan better this time

Wander around and look at the posters on the churches. I happened by Santa Maria Della Pieta (Vivaldi's church) earlier this week and there was a poster for a free concert that was last evening and it was wonderful. Haven't seen anything for those exacted dates but keep your eyes open when you get here. It is a real way to mix with the local people as everyone in the church was either friend or family of the choir that was singing...young people who were like an Italian Glee without the dancing. Everyone had such a good time.

So you may not be able to plan till you actually get here because these are not advertised in the usual publications.

Sadly I had to admit to the gentleman sitting next to me that I did not speak enough Italian to have a conversation...and he had no English....but we smiled and enjoyed the show.
