MSU hosts 8th annual birthday concert for Mozart
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born 262 years ago. Yet, as one of the world’s most beloved composers, his work resonates today.
To celebrate, the Michigan State University College of Music is proud to present the eighth annual “Happy Birthday Mozart!” concert.
Part of the Joanne and Bill Church West Circle Series, the performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 22 in Fairchild Theatre at the MSU Auditorium.
Mozart composed more than 600 works. Many of them are considered pinnacles of symphonic, concert, chamber, operatic and choral music, giving the musicians much to choose from each year.
Featured in the “Happy Birthday Mozart!” concert are Deborah Moriarty, piano; Derek Polischuk, piano; Guy Yehuda, clarinet; Yuri Gandelsman, viola; and Zhihua Tang, piano.
Planned for the 2018 event are “Sonata in C major,” K. 521, performed by Derek Polischuk and Deborah Moriarty; “Kegelstatt” Trio, K. 498, performed by Guy Yehuda, Yuri Gandelsman and Deborah Moriarty; and “Concerto in C major”, K. 415, performed by Zhihua Tang.
The concert is sponsored by Martha and John Brick.
