Join us for an evening of music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Leopold Mozart, and Antonio Salieri! We will be led by guest conductor Adam Thomas, a music educator and former graduate student at the University of Louisville. Our program tells a story of the conflict between Mozart and his father, the Hollywood depiction of the conflict between Mozart and Salieri in the 1984 film, "Amadeus," as well as Mozart's own internal struggles.
We will be performing Mozart's Symphony No. 40 in G Minor, the only one of his numbered symphonies which he wrote mainly in a minor key. It is perhaps his most recognized symphony, and you will know it immediately within the first few measures! In addition, we will be performing the overture to Antonio Salieri's opera, "Falstaff," and the "Kindersymphonie" (Toy Symphony) in G Major by Mozart's father, Leopold Mozart. (The authorship of this work has been disputed, and has been attributed to three composers.)
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children, and $3 for high school and college students.
