Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is preparing to premiere his latest composition with the Omaha Symphony. Disaster strikes when a freak accident during rehearsal causes Mozart to lose his memory! With the concert only moments away, students team up with the Maestro and the orchestra to rush to Mozart’s aid, teaching him about how to be a composer. Together, they learn about pitch, tempo, dynamics and accompaniment to help Mozart complete his work.
Mission Imagination combines a child’s love of storytelling with the power of symphonic music in an up-close and playful setting. The program’s dynamic format puts kids in the center of the action, making them active participants in their own learning. Will you help Mozart remember his masterpiece?
