MOZART EXTRAVAGANZA

6th November – Mozart Symphony 39

13th November – Mozart Requiem

14th November – Mozart Concert

Anthony Sargent is one of Cobwebs’ favourite conductors and this Autumn he is guiding the orchestra through some of Mozart’s glorious mature compositions.  The Mozart extravaganza begins with a Sage Day delving into his wonderful 39th Symphony on Saturday 6th November, followed by a Study Day looking at his Requiem on Saturday 13th before the project culminates in a rehearsal & performance of both works in Bishop Auckland Town Hall on Sunday 14th.
As usual you can take part in as many of the days that make up this project as you like, although it does give us the opportunity for thorough and detailed preparation with Anthony for the final concert.  And, just so it doesn’t get too expensive for those of you wanting to really get inside the music before the 14th, we’re offering a special deal.  Whichever is the first Mozart event you attend you get the rest of the extravaganza events for free!
