Only the term “Mozart” is needed to identify this great composer/musician/conductor, but you know exactly who we are talking about. Some call him Wolfgang Amadeus for short, but his full name is much longer. There is no question about to which Mozart we are referring when we say just the last name. Mozart’s work will be the center of attention March 19th at the concert of the LaGrange Symphony Orchestra. This performance beginning at 7:30 PM at Callaway auditorium, features his Violin Concerto No. 5 in A Major, Overture to the Marriage of Figaro, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, and Symphony No. 25 in G minor.
This concert will include two additional pieces providing side-by-side performance time for our Youth Orchestra members. This annual event pairs a LSYO member with one of our professional musicians for one or two pieces. This experience has proven to be very valuable to our students and also to the audience. You will be amazed at the tonal quality and the level of technique achieved by our music program members. The two pieces they will perform are Elgar’s Enigma Variations, op. 36 – Nimrod, and selections from Reed’s Suite Concertante.
So, about Mozart’s full name? He was baptized Johannes Chrystostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart and he lived from 1756–1791. That is a very full name and March 19th will be a very full program! Don’t wait. Secure your tickets now for this wonderfully classic night of entertainment.
