Mozart Live features noted clarinetist and Julliard Graduate William A. Hagenah,playing the role of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart who travels through time to the present to
entertain, awe and inspire his audience.
A noted concert highlight is the unique and engaging "Parade of the Stuffed Animals"
led by Hagenah, and designed to let children who attend the concerts become 'involved in the act' by participating in an indoor holiday musical parade while carrying their own
favorite stuffed animal as a Grand Finale to the Mozart Live performances.
Hagenah, who impersonates Mozart, also humorously
recounts his meetings with other great composers like Gershwin, Duke Ellington and Jerome Kern and tries to reconcile himself with the technological changes he experiences along the way. This holiday season, the shows will also feature well known Holiday musical selections intertwined with the Mozart classics and other surprises.
Garbed in a Mozart period costume, not only does Hagenah perform classic Mozart compositions but brings a new twist to select works of some of the composers he
meets in his time travels. The show uses a mixture of inspiring virtuoso performances on the clarinet and piano, period costume, wit, humor and tall tale telling which audiences have seen as 'something of a find' whenever Hagenah impersonates Mozart.
