Mission Imagination

Mozart's Missing Memory

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is preparing to premiere his latest composition with the Omaha Symphony. Disaster strikes when an 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. Help Mozart find his memory and finish the concert. The show must go on!

Iowa Schools should register for the IWCC dates through the Arts Center. Please call 712-388-7140 for more information.
