is a great production piece to feature all of your choirs. The open
harmonies and haunting melodic line provide an outstanding base for a

and harmonic lines.

Rock Me Amadeus
This piece brings Mozart’s 40th symphony into a whole new dimension using contemporary rock rhythms and harmonies. The original story line touches on some of Mozart’s struggles as a great composer trapped in a lifestyle with little freedom to create the music he truly longed to write.

This piece could also serve as a reference point for a historical study of the life of Mozart.
