Mozarteum University

Mozarteum University of Salzburg

In 1841, to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Wolfgang Amadé Mozart, a group of middle-class citizens founded the Cathedral Music Association and the Mozarteum. With this they intended to give added momentum to musical life in Salzburg by organising concerts, and also they wanted to ensure that there were enough young instrumentalists for the church services in Salzburg Cathedral.  In 1870 the International Mozarteum Foundation was founded to encourage young talented musicians, and in 1881 it took over the Mozarteum Public Music School.
