Mozart died at 35. But in his short life he composed some of the greatest works known to humankind. Next week, for the 26th time, Connoisseur Concerts celebrates the famous classical artist with its Mozart on a Summer’s Eve event at Manito Park. The show begins with the Connoisseur Concerts’ Wind Ensemble, along with local soprano/songwriter Madeline McNeill, working through everything from Mozart to Edith Piaf. Zuill Bailey, artistic director of the Northwest Bach Festival, then gets busy on the cello, playing Haydn and Elgar, accompanied by a trio of young cellists from his Sitka Cello Seminar. For those reserving tables, Luna restaurant will cater dinner at a separate request. For those on the lawn, bring blankets and/or chairs to sit on. Picnic food and beverages are encouraged. Seating begins at 5:30 pm.
