‘Mozart in the High School Years’

ALPENA, Mich. – The Alpena Symphony Orchestra are stringing in the fall season with their latest upcoming perfomance.

The chamber orchestra concert is titled “Mozart in the High School Years.”

Doors open September 22nd at 7pm inside the First Assembly of God Church.

PR expert Maria Laina Goeke said Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed two of many pieces the symphony will perform when he was just 15 and 16 years old.

“Bring your children, especially your teens and especially if they play an instrument,” said Goeke, “because I would like to see them sit there in that church pew, listen to the way Mozart put these notes together….[blended] at 15 and 16. Think about this.”

There will be a reception in the fellowship hall following the performance.

The concert costs 10 bucks for adults. Children and students are free of charge.

Tickets can be purchased at Nieman’s Family Market or at the door on the day of the event.

“The symphony program…is called Mozart in his high years for a very good reason,” said Goeke.
