MOZART CHILDREN'S ORCHESTRA

“Whoso learns young, forgets not when he’s old” and “Practice makes perfect”: true enough, but strict repetition of difficult studies in the pursuit of perfection is not half as much fun as making music together. this is the aim of the newly-founded Mozart children’s orchestra, which will make its début at the 2013 Mozart Week. In this ensemble set up in collaboration with schools of music in the town and the Province of Salzburg and neighbouring bavaria, children up to the age of twelve can experience the wonderful feeling of coming together as an orchestra. they can show that they are perfectly capable of fulfilling the technical and musical demands of works by Mozart and other composers, and of conveying their enthusiasm to audiences. The Mozart children’s orchestra is intended as a motivation for young musicians. we are convinced that Mozart’s music is particularly suitable as the centre of such a project, and we hope the orchestra will provide a strong incentive and an exemplary contribution to early musical training. “Mozart is too easy for children and too difficult for adults” (Artur Schnabel).

The first concert of the Mozart Children's Orchestra will take place during the Mozart Week on February 3 2013 and as school concert on February 4.
