AmiciMusic Presents Mozart in the Mountains Festival
March 17, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$15 – $25
AmiciMusic, Asheville’s award-winning chamber music organization, presents its first Mozart in the Mountains Festival the weekend of March 15-17 with two different programs in four locations in Asheville, Hendersonville and Brevard. For information on all the programs, visit www.amicimusic.org and click on the link to Asheville Concerts. The first program, titled Breaking Winds, features the debut of a new Asheville-based Wind Ensemble called Breaking Winds that features an all-star collection of the top wind musicians from the Asheville Symphony, Hendersonville Symphony, Brevard Philharmonic, Greenville Symphony, and Knoxville Symphony. Directed by clarinetist Steve Loew, Breaking Winds will specialize in performing the once popular, but now neglected repertoire of large wind ensemble music. On this program, they will perform Mozart’s amazing Octet in E Flat Major and then will be joined by AmiciMusic’s artistic director and pianist in Mozart’s delightful Wind Quintet. Also performing on this program is the Asheville Clarinet Choir, which will perform works by Mozart as well as his lesser known contemporaries, Stamitz and Pleyel.
