October 13 & 14, 2018 ~ Free Concerts


We begin our 43rd season with comfortably classical literature from two of the greats — Mozart and Dvořák — both celebrating the cultural life of that wonderful city on the Moldau, Praha (Prague). Dvořák, of course, was Czech and lived many years in Prague. Mozart visited the city many times and a number of his most significant works were premiered in that city. Mozart loved Praha!
