CLARK ART INSTITUTE PRESENTS SOUNDINGS: THE OTHER MOZART
Program is a collaboration with the Nasher Sculpture Center
Williamstown, Massachusetts—Soundings: The Other Mozart, the final concert in this year’s series Soundings: New Music at the Clark takes place on Saturday, June 18 at 7 pm in the Clark’s auditorium. Soundings is presented by the Clark Art Institute in collaboration with the Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas. The Other Mozart is an award-winning play telling the true, forgotten story of Nannerl Mozart, the sister of Amadeus. Nannerl was a prodigy, keyboard virtuoso, and composer, who performed throughout Europe with her brother to equal acclaim, but her work and her story faded away, lost to history. This celebration of music and history has toured the world, from London to Hong Kong to Salzburg, and now Williamstown.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for members, $8 for students, and $7 for children 12 and under. Reserve at clarkart.edu/events.
The critically acclaimed Soundings music series originated at the Nasher Sculpture Center in 2009 and features groundbreaking performances created under the artistic direction of Seth Knopp, a founding member of the Peabody Trio and artistic director of Yellow Barn, an international center for chamber music based in Putney, Vermont. Treating music lovers to brilliant concerts by some of today’s most inspiring musicians, Soundings has been hailed as “rapt and soulful…beautifully performed” by The New York Times.
