For example, this location offers organizers wishing to arrange cultural supporting programmes exciting possibilities for arranging an evening with a private concert of classical music in the baroque basilica. The musical performances are can be booked with different line-ups, such as a string quartet, organ with soprano, or large choir and orchestra. You can even book a concert with the original Vienna Boys' Choir as a perfect surprise for the discerning tour organizer. This particularly appropriate, as the Vienna Boys' Choir was housed within the walls of this monastery for the first 30 years of its existence.
Music Memorial: During the last 300 years, the monastery church of the Piarist played a crucial role in the musical life of Vienna. Even Mozart, Haydn, Schubert and Bruckner have himself played in this House and premiered major works and Anton Bruckner completed his organ examination in this basilica.
