Events in Perg

The special exhibition deals, among other things, with the historical documents that record Anton Bruckner's relationship with Perg.

A fragmentary account is given of the ways in which the musician, Anton Bruckner, was honoured in Perg in the decades following his death through the naming of a street, the hanging of a memorial plaque, in specialist lectures or as part of church tours. An annual programme, which accompanies the exhibition, is directed at the inhabitants of the town and district of Perg inviting them to visit the exhibition.

Perg is Bruckner's town because
- Anton Bruckner's great-grandmother was the daughter of a millstone cutter from Perg
- Bruckner had personal friends or was acquainted with several people from Perg (in particular the Mayor, Karl Terpinitz, and the schoolmaster, Kirchhofer) and Anton Bruckner was thus commissioned to build a new organ in the parish church of Perg,
- Anton Bruckner dedicated the Perg Prelude to the leather goods' merchant, Josef Diernhofer,
- Anton Bruckner set the Liedertafel motto to music written by the Pergkirchen priest, Andreas Mittermayr.
