Inauguration Concert with the newly restored FernwerkSunday, 15.08.21 - 17:00
Fund Raising Event
This year the Basilica Mariatrost celebrates the "Feast of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven" in a special way.
As part of the morning mass events, the Fernwerk, freshly restored by the Drago Lukman company - a jewel unique in its kind, hidden high up in the dome of the basilica, which had been inactive and unplayable for decades - will be consecrated by Vicar General Dr. Erich Linhardt.
At 5:00 p.m. the full organ, built by the Pflüger company and also currently in the process of a general renovation, will be heard, as will the Fernwerk for the first time again, in a concert with works by Bach, Dupré and Eben.
Instead of an entrance fee, donations are requested for the preservation of the basilica.
