Mozart’s birth 260 years ago is the inspiration for this magical program featuring Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (A Little Night Music), the “Sparrow” Mass and scenes from The Magic Flute. Said to come from “a light, but happy pen,” Mozart’s most popular composition, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, which the composer himself called “a little serenade,” will feature a chamber orchestra. The “Sparrow” Mass, officially penned as Mass in C Major, featuring the Chorale and four soloists, refers to the music played by the violins as they mimic the sounds of chirping birds. Select scenes from the Opera The Magic Flute capture the fanciful tale of Tamino and Pamina as they seek to gain freedom from their oppressors.
