SkanFest U: Why Mozart?

Mozart’s music remains a cultural touchstone, even in today’s pluralistic world. What gives Mozart’s music its staying power, and how does it continue to inspire both listeners and composers? Get inside the music, including several works to be heard on Festival programs this season, and learn how Mozart’s music inspired those after him, including Chopin, Rossini, Tchaikovsky, and even contemporary artists from diverse backgrounds, like Chick Corea and Vijay Iyer (whose Mozart Effects will be heard August 3). Hear exclusive live performances by Festival artists and mingle with your fellow Mozart enthusiasts afterward over a glass of wine. Led by Artistic Director Aaron Wunsch, who teaches on Mozart’s music at The Juilliard School.

Four weekly sessions are led by Artistic Director, Aaron Wunsch, who teaches at The Juilliard School.

Four Tuesdays, 7/25 – 8/15, 4-5 PM
