The music of Mozart will fill the Gallo Center's main theater next weekend, as the Modesto Symphony Orchestra features the composer's first and final symphonies and brings in a pianist to join in concerto.
Pianist Jed Moss will offer Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 27. Symphony director David Lockington will lead the all-Mozart concert, which will include the Austrian composer's Symphony No. 1 Which he wrote at age 8 and the last symphony he composed, Symphony No. 41, which was nicknamed "Jupiter."
A child prodigy, Mozart was born in Austria in 1756 and is among the most famous and most prolific composers in history, having composed approximately 600 works.
Moss has been a featured soloist as well as a collaborative pianist with orchestras, instrumentalists and vocalists from the U.K. and North America.
He performs frequently in faculty recitals at Brigham Young University, The University of Utah, Weber State College and Utah State University, and has been a guest performer at colleges and universities across the nation.
