Michigan State University’s College of Music is proud to present the ninth annual “Happy Birthday Mozart!” concert, celebrating the legacy of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, whose influence can still be felt over 200 years since his death.

Part of the Joanne and Bill Church West Circle Series, “Happy Birthday Mozart!” will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 28 in Fairchild Theatre, MSU Auditorium.

Austrian child prodigy Mozart became famous for his compositions, writing that would become pinnacles of symphonic, concert, chamber, operatic and choral music among his more than 600 works. Musicians today have much to choose from his repertoire.

Featured in the “Happy Birthday Mozart!” concert are Tamar Mikeladze and Deborah Moriarty, piano; I-Fu Wang, violin, and Zhihua Tang, piano; and Derek Polischuk, piano. Patrick Johnson will serve as the concert guide. 

As part of the celebration, birthday treats will be provided to attending patrons following the concert.

Tickets are $17 for adults, $15 for seniors ages 60 and older and $7 for students with ID and anyone under age 18. They can be purchased online, by phone, in person or at the door.

The concert is sponsored by Martha and John Brick.
