Following the musical service by the Gross-Siegharts Band in 1997, the Our Lady of the Lily Musical Society hosted the second foreign musical formation taking part in Mqabba. The Feast of Our Lady of the Lily 1998 saw the participation of the Stadtkapelle Schildorn, hailing from the Austrian village bearing the same name. Austria is considered by many as the land of music.
The musicians in their typical Austrian attire, played traditional Tyrolan music and also organised a concert on the artistic bandstand, featuring various unusual instruments. The two bands enjoy an excellent relationship to this very day.
