Mozart: Hidden In Plain Sight

Jan 3, 2019

WSHU is thrilled to present Mozart: Hidden in Plain Sight, a unique concert series of six live, intimate performances in our Broadcast Studio showcasing Mozart's work that is extraordinary, but not often performed live. Grammy-nominated pianist Joshua Pierce and award-winning violinist Andrew Smith will bring to life a cycle of sonatas that reveal a uniquely personal perspective of Mozart's journey from wunderkind to icon.

Purchase your tickets for these individual, monthly concerts, or purchase the entire subscription series at a discount. Each performance is approximately 90 minutes, including intermission, and takes place in The Stone Family Assembly Hall at the WSHU Broadcast Studio in Fairfield, Connecticut. Come discover incredible music with us!
