Evening Concert

An all-Mozart vocal-choral program from the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra on the “Evening Concert”


In our culture Hollywood is the destination for many who want to be involved with the "art that includes all arts" (motion pictures). In Mozart's day it was Vienna and the world of opera (opera, in it's time, was -,maybe still yet! - the  "art that includes all arts"). Tonight at 7:00 on the Evening Concert on WILL-FM 90.9 it’s the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra led by Music Director Manfred Honeck with vocal-choral music of Mozart: the “Ave verum corpus” and excerpts from the “Requiem”. Also on the program arias and choruses from “The Magic Flute and the “Marriage of Figaro”.
