“This is the first time since I joined the Mobile Symphony that we’ve performed Mozart’s Requiem. I’m thrilled to say that among our four brilliant vocal soloists is the legendary bass-baritone James Morris, whose international career spans roles from Mozart to Wagner, including over three decades of performances at the Metropolitan Opera.” – Scott Speck, Music Director
The Mobile Symphony presents an all-Mozart concert featuring works included in the hit 1984 movie Amadeus! This salute to one of classical music’s most popular composers ends with a monumental performance of Mozart’s iconic Requiem with the University of South Alabama Concert Choir, Mobile Opera Chorus and acclaimed soloists. The idea that listening to classical music can increase your brainpower has become so popular that it’s been dubbed “the Mozart effect.” So, if you’re smart – or just want to be – join the MSO for this amazing entertaining and brain-boosting concert!
