Mozart Camp
Mozart Camp is a five-day program of lectures, recitals, films, concerts, dinners, museum visits and more for adult learners of all ages. The program centers around the theme "Mozart: A family affair", and investigates music written by  Wolfgang, his father Leopold and son Franz Xaver, and music played by his sister Nannerl. Mozart Camp culminates in a performance of The Secret Gardener (La finta giardiniera), which Mozart composed at age 18.
