Prague Chamber Orchestra to pay homage to Mozart

Date Posted: 1999-10-08

"Offer the Mozart concert that everyone can enjoy."

With this idea firmly in mind, a series of concerts dedicated to Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart will be held by the famous Prague Chamber Orchestra at Sugar Hall in Sashiki Town on Thursday October 14 and Friday the 15th at the Gushikawa Citizen Art Theater.

At the Gushikawa performance, elementary and high school music teachers from throughout the city helped select the Mozart tunes most familiar with the general public. Four compositions, including Mozart's Symphony No. 31 and No. 40, will be performed; at Sugar Hall, the audience will be treated to Symphony No.38 and No.40.

The Prague Chamber Orchestra is widely recognized as one of the world’s premier exponents of Mozart’s musical masterpieces. The orchestra has an international reputation for first-class performances, made even more remarkable as they are not led by a conductor.

With a grant-in-aid by the public lottery organization, tickets for the concert will cost only ¥3000 in advance and ¥3500 at door, almost half the price of most concert tickets. Performances begin at 7 p.m. with the doors open at 6:30 p.m. All seats are unreserved.

To avoid disruptions and interruptions, parents are asked not to bring infants and small children to the concert.

Tickets are now on sale at Sugar Hall, Book Box Agena, Misato branches, Mitsukoshi, Ryubou Department Stores, and the Civic Art Theater. For more details, please contact Sugar Hall at 947-1100 or Gushikawa Citizen Art Theater at 973-4400.
