Pensacola Symphony OrchestraMozart’s Magnificent Voyage
Saturday, April 27, 2024
Join the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra for this fun family event featuring a theatrical concert for all ages followed by hands-on musical activities! Mozart’s Magnificent Voyage features the story of the composer’s young son, Karl, who longs to be taken from his boarding school to spend more time with his famous father. An old traveling trunk serves as a magic chest that reveals an incredible journey back in time to Mozart’s childhood and into the fantastic world of Mozart’s great opera, The Magic Flute. Along the way, Karl comes to understand the composer’s extraordinary life as a traveling prodigy, his passion for composing, the pressures of family and fame, and the common bonds they both share.
Woven into the drama are two dozen excerpts from some of Mozart’s most famous pieces, including themes from The Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni, selections from The Magic Flute, and some of his most important and engaging works such as Ave Verum, Symphony No. 1, Clarinet Quintet, and Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.
After the concert, join us for an instrument petting zoo with Pensacola Symphony musicians and a variety of hands-on activities.
