The Miracle of Mozart - In this multimedia presentation we tell the story of how that most divinely gifted of all composers, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, came to write one of the most revolutionary works of his time.  Towards the end of his short but brilliant life, Mozart was broke, ignored by his formerly adoring public and mourning the death of his dauther.  It is said that Mozart's final symphony sums up an era, but more than that, it is a glimpse into the intimate life of this childlike genius.  His Symphony no. 41 in C major (Jupiter) is a key that can unlock Mozart's miraculous world and will be performed at the conclusion of the concert.

Great operatic composers are the focus of this concert.  Rossini captured all the magic of a timeless fairytail in his effersescent Overture to Cinderella.  The overall winner of the 2013 Prescott Music Award, Lauren Davis, performs enchanting works for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Puccini.  And we conclude with a long lost work by the compser of Carmen, George Bizet - his joyous, youthful Symphony in C!

Mendelssohn Marathon- There is no greater romantic imaginer than Feliz Mendelssohn.  In our mini-marathon we explore many of hes most brilliant creations with two of his Scottish inspired works; the symphonoic poem Fingal's Cave and the evergreen Scotch Symphony. Mysterious water sprites and ancient curses abound in the Fair Melusina Overture and twilight becomes magical with his most famous of works in the Overture to Midsummer Night's Dream.
