Mozart Writ Large; Wagner Writ Small (Concert Announcement)

T4 (1)-page-0
Conductor Thomas Cunningham presents this concert in NYC on Sunday. I’ve known Tom since his student days at Westminster Choir College and think he has a bright future as an orchestra conductor ahead of him.
Please join an orchestra of New York’s finest freelance musicians for a program exploring Mozart’s first steps into compositional maturity, Tchaikovsky’s ode to his favorite composer (Mozart), and Wagner’s symphonic poem for chamber orchestra, written for an intimate birthday performance for his second wife, Cosima.

November 17, 8 PM
