Orchestra Iowa Presents: Mozart’s Magnificent Voyage, Family Discovery Day
Orchestra Iowa invites families to join us on a magical journey with Mozart and his son, Karl, to learn all about the wonder of Mozart’s music in a fun and engaging concert production. Karl 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 Mozart’s extraordinary life as a traveling prodigy, his passion for composing, the pressures of family and fame, and the common bonds they both share.
Audiences will enjoy twenty three excerpts from some of Mozart’s most famous pieces as they magically weave in and out of the drama, including themes from The Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni, popular 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.
