Happy Birthday Mozart

Don't miss Mozart's Birthday party at Mount Sinai Hospital! We'll feature hours of orchestral, vocal, and chamber music to brighten your day. 

The day begins at noon with an orchestra concert led by conductor Will Crutchfield featuring some of New York's brightest period instrument performers. You'll hear soloists Cynthia Roberts, Dongsok Shin, Samina Aslam, and Nadir Aslam backed by this sparkling ensemble. Stay for the afternoon as we hear chamber music on all instruments from all periods of Mozart's life.
