If you were slightly confused by a recent New York Times article, do not fret, classical music is alive and well at Lincoln Center’s Summer for the City series. The Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra kicked off with two free performances at the outdoor Damrosch Park Bandshell on July 19th and 20th. The remainder of the season is being held in Alice Tully Hall and consists of 8 more performances on Tuesday, July 26th, Wednesday, July 27th, Friday, July 29th, Saturday, July 30th, Tuesday, August 2nd, Wednesday, August 3rd, Friday, August 5th, and Saturday, August 6th, all at 7:30 pm. These performances are Choose-What-You-Pay and incorporate Music: Not Impossible wearable technology for Deaf and hard-of-hearing audience members.

Led by Maestro Louis Langrée, the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra will also welcome guest conductors Jonathon Heyward and Roderick Cox during their upcoming performances, as well as soloists Augustin Hadelich, Jeanette De Bique, and Joshua Bell. The final shows will feature a performance of Mozart’s Requiem, led by Langrée and performed with The Unsung Collective (directed by Tyrone Clinton Jr.) and soloists Sunhae Im, Daniela Mack, Matthew Swensen, and Dashon Burton.
