About This Concert

Mozart’s Jupiter, his 41st and final symphony, builds to one of the most spectacular finales in all of classical music. It's inspired many composers who followed, including Robert Schumann, who compared it to the works of Shakespeare.

Fun Facts

  • Jupiter is a true testament to Mozart’s genius and was written within weeks of Symphony No. 39 and Symphony No. 40 in 1778.
  • Mozart did not nickname his final symphony Jupiter—that was added later by a music promoter.
  • These bite-sized concerts are shorter and begin at 6pm. Join us for a pre-concert happy hour, local craft brews and a chance to mingle with musicians onstage after the performance.
