Mozart in 1776

Mozart in 1776: Our Inaugural Concert

Grand Harmonie and Philadelphia's period string quartet, Franklin Quartet join together with mezzo-soprano Julia Mintzer for a salon-style evening at the historic Powel House in Philadelphia's Old City. This one-of-a-kind event features food, drink, discussion, and of course music, all written by Mozart in 1776. Historical wind expert Geoffrey Burgess and music historian and archivist Jack McCarthy, both local Philadelphians, will set the stage with informative mini-lectures. Let us take you outside the concert hall to experience cultural life at the dawn of the American Revolution!

This performance is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts program of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Support also provided by PECO. This program is administered regionally by the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance.
