For the 16th year in a row, Roger Wiesmeyer is organizing a birthday celebration for one of music's greatest geniuses: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This year's annual Mozart Celebration will feature several vocal selections as well as Wiesmeyer playing the solo part in a piano concerto (all by Mozart, of course.)
Performances are at noon on January 19th at St. George's Episcopal Church and 7pm January 22 at Edgehill United Methodist.
For the full concerts, the concertos will be performed with a full orchestra, but for his Live in Studio C performance, Wiesmeyer brought a string quartet to play it in a reduction by Jakub Kowalesky.
