MUSIC OF MOZART: GROSSMONT SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA AND MASTER CHORALE CONCERTS

 

April 1 in Spring Valley, April 10 in Point Loma

March 13, 2016 (Spring Valley) - The 2015-2016 performance season of the Grossmont Symphony Orchestra and Master Chorale continues with a special choral/orchestral project in honor of the 260th anniversary of the birth of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.  The concert opens with his operatic overture to Don Giovanni and ends with a performance of his Requiem—a bookending of works that share a common theme: the first recognizing a man’s judgement by God for his many sins, and the last asking God for entrance ofone’s soul to Heaven.

The program is contrasted with a piece of chamber music that the composer wrote for flute and string trio: Mozart’s Flute Quartet in A Major, K. 298 as performed by GSO principal flautist, Kay Van Tassell, and members of the Grossmont Symphony String Quartet.
