Thank you to everyone who made our Mostly Mozart Festival Pop-Up Week such a success!!!

It was amazing to meet and perform with the 150 students that participated in our Mostly Mozart Summer Student Intensive from the Union City Music Project, Harlem School of the Arts, Corona Youth Music Project, Harmony Program, BridgeMusik, Chamber Music Center of NY, UpBeat NYC, Opportunity Music Project, Orchestrating Dreams, and other programs from all over New York City and New Jersey.

Our fantastic Pop-Up Concerts were met with enthusiastic and appreciative audiences every night. The demand to attend our full orchestra concert on August 6th was so great, that a second performance had to be added on the 7th; what a thrill to perform to a packed house two nights in a row!

We hope to return to our regular summer season next year, and to continue our collaboration with these talented and dedicated students.

Thank you everyone for your continued support, and please contact Lincoln Center at 212-875-5456 or on their site if you would like to see more Mostly Mozart next summer!

“Music has the power to heal, elevate and unite us. Mozart addresses to us a universal message for humanity, and the Jupiter Symphony will echo the overwhelming joy our Orchestra will feel performing together for our beloved and devoted audience for the very first time after two years of silence, after such a challenging time away. We cannot wait!” 

- Louis Langrée
