I went to the Symphony for my first time last night (HELLO #2020) and I had a great time! The conductor, Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser did a lovely job conducting the 40 piece Chicago Philharmonic symphony orchestra. Read on below for more details and keep checking back on the site for future performance dates/locations.
Based on the genius of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and featuring his most popular works, The Mozart Effect: Live!™ takes the presentation of the live symphony orchestra to an entirely new place. Performed by the 40 piece Chicago Philharmonic symphony orchestra, conducted by Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser, accompanied by high definition large format immersive video and visual effects, The Mozart Effect: Live!™ is curated to stimulate the senses, inspire, and engage the deepest corners of the human psyche.
Timed to the dynamics of the orchestra’s performance of Mozart’s timeless music, the visual presentation takes the audience from the farthest reaches of space, through awe inspiring flights over mountains and into the deepest canyons, to human relationships. These visuals are married with special lighting effects and live video close-ups of the musicians and conductor. The result is a sensory enhanced symphonic aural and visual experience, with moments of intimate performance nuance and powerful climactic peaks.
The Mozart Effect: Live! featuring the music of the world’s most popular composer is the perfect introduction to live orchestral music for the uninitiated, and a new adventure for the symphony enthusiast.
The transformational power of music to stimulate human cognitive processes, improve memory and focus using Music Therapy were first explored by educator Don Campbell in his best-selling book The Mozart Effect. Don Campbell subsequently curated a series of themed albums of Mozart’s music that sold millions of copies. By special permission of his estate, Don Campbell’s innovative teaching was the inspiration to bring The Mozart Effect: Live! to the concert stage.
The creators of The Mozart Effect: Live! have two main objectives; to leave audiences enlightened, invigorated, and having experienced something entirely unlike any other concert or theatrical event and to introduce live orchestra to new audiences.
