…is an innovative artist agency from Salzburg, the city of Mozart. The base consists of a string quartet with two violins, one viola and one violoncello. Of course we can increase the number of musicians up to the size of a symphonic orchestra, but we can also offer a smaller version e.g. with two violins only. The Classic Rocks quartet interprets classical songs in a modern way. Pimp your event (e.g. wedding, private party, company event…) with a unique combination of modern and classic.
This crossover is new and will give your event a special, unforgettable touch.
Most of our musicians finished their studies at the famous Salzburg music university “Mozarteum“.
We are mobile and our profession is our passion – look and see!

Who is behind all this?
Classic Rocks is my passion, my vision, my working place and my biggest hobby. Finally I dared to make my dream true and I give my best to make an adventure and an unforgetable experience out of every event like a wedding, birthday party, jubilee or company party. Yours, Petra Toscany – manager
more than 100 performances
years of experience
Classic Rocks is not just me. It also includes fanstastic musicians and friends. Without them it wouldn’t be possible to realize this dream.
My name is Petra Natalia Toscany, I was born on February 19 in 1983. After finishing the economic academy HAK Salzburg I was working at the reception and the reservations department in 2 different hotels for several years. From 2005 until 2017 I was working at the company “Salzburger Konzertgesellschaft“, which is an agency specialized in organizing classical concerts in Austria and abroad. I was the chief of the book keeping department, worked as chief secretary and was responsible for organizing lots and lots of concerts. In this agency I collected lots of experience and spent a wonderful time of my life.
In my spare time you can find me anywhere, where there is water. I love the Italian and the Spanish sea, the lakes in our wonderful Austria and the swimming pool. Further I have an aquarium, but normally I do not swim there.
