Our annual toast to Mozart’s birthday features Byron Schenkman and Friends performing some of Mozart’s late, great masterworks, including his last piece of chamber music, the Adagio and Rondo in C Minor, K. 617. Also on the program: the Piano Sonata in B-flat, K. 570; the Trio in C Major, K. 548; and music from The Magic Flute. Schenkman, whose piano playing has been described in The New York Times as “sparkling, elegant, and insightful,” is joined by violinist/violist Ralph Allen, flutist Paul Taub, oboist Brent Hages, and cellist Nathan Whittaker. As always, there’ll be complimentary sparkling beverages and chocolates, prize drawings, and great merriment for all. Presented by Town Hall.
Advance tickets are $15/$13 Town Hall members, students & seniors at www.townhallseattle.org; $18/$16 at the door. Downstairs at Town Hall, enter on Seneca Street.
