Happy Birthday, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart! Michael Butterman leads the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra in festivities Sat, Nov 18, at Riverview Theater;
Pianist Alon Goldstein will jet into Shreveport to pound the piano, Susan Yankee returns home to sing soprano, and Michael Butterman will conduct the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra in a Mozart fest Sat, Nov 18, 7:30 pm, in Riverview Theater (formerly Civic Theater).
"In Mozart's day he was white hot," Butterman told Times writer Jane Bokun. "He was able to work in so many different venues, including orchestral and chamber music. Madonna is always adapting her style as well."
A recent airing of the new documentary In Search of Mozart (see review on SptBlog) reminded me of the lives of Lennon & McCartney.
What's not to like about the entrancing melodies of Wolfie?
