Our presenting partner Parlando is back with yet another fabulous concert at Merkin Hall to offer to our Groupmuse community at seriously reduced prices through our Nights Out program.

This time on the program: The Other Mozart Effect, an exploration of how young composers have interpreted Mozart’s legacy. The program includes Reynaldo Hahn’s charming Mozart Overture and Alfred Schnittke’s witty tribute to the 18th century, Moz-Art à la Haydn, before concluding with Rimsky Korsakov’s one-act opera, Mozart and Salieri (the precursor to the Oscar-winning film Amadeus) featuring Joseph Parrish as Salieri and Daniel McGrew as Mozart.

Just as you've come to expect at every Groupmuse house concert, Parlando provides the musical and historical context to prepare every audience member for the music they are about to hear. Through short introductions to each piece, Parlando bridges the gap between audience and performer, creating an intimate, accessible orchestral experience.

Every Parlando program has a theme and contains a blend of new, underrepresented, and standard works. By connecting each piece through a shared theme, the concert becomes a story, and the audience is able to carry the experience from one piece to the next. Parlando strives to leave every audience member knowing more about classical music than when they walked in.

Ticket buyers are instructed to pick up their tickets at the Merkin Hall Box Office prior to the concert's start time. Groups wishing to sit together should purchase tickets under a single reservation.
