UT Collaborates with Toledo Symphony to Celebrate Mozart

Celebrating the Genius of Mozart - January through February 2014

Celebrating the Genius of Mozart – January through February 2014

 

The University of Toledo College of Communication and the Arts is collaborating with the Toledo Symphony on a number of events connected with celebrating Mozart, January through February.

For two years, The University of Toledo and the TSO have been proud to collaborate on an arts and humanities festival. Centered on themes inspired by Symphony programs, these lectures, movie screenings and performances have covered diverse topics from the pain of the Civil War to modern day film culture.

This year’s festival celebrates the genius of Mozart, the fascinating time period of the 18th century and the ways it continues to intrigue us today. The series culminates on February 7 & 8 when the Symphony performs the original Peter Shaffer play, “Amadeus,” accompanied by music from the film—all performed live.
