Chesapeake Orchestra Breathes Life into Mozart During Pops on the Potomac July 21

By Annamarya Scaccia

cheasIn spite of all his peculiar personality traits, Mozart was a prolific genius—a symphonic maestro that understood the intricate, interweaving notes of music. There was—and is—no one like him.

And on Saturday, July 21, the Chesapeake Orchestra will breathe new life into the long-passed classical era composer when the ensemble performs select works for its Pops on the Potomac series at National Harbor. The free concert will take place from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Plaza Stage near Mariner Passage and Fleet Street in National Harbor.

The local orchestra, which kicked off its concert series on June 16, will perform the overture to Mozart’s famous two-act opera The Magic Flute, Concerto for Horn (No. 3), “Symphony No. 40,” and his 1787 chamber ensemble composition, Eine kleine Nachtmusik (“A Little Night Music”).

Pops on the Potomac runs through August 25. For more information, visit http://www.chesapeakeorchestra.org/pops-on-the-potomac.html.
