Words, Wine, and Music
Join us for a delightful evening featuring Stephanie Cowell, author of Marrying Mozart. Amadeus meets Little Women in this irresistibly delightful historical novel by award-winning author Stephanie Cowell. The year is 1777 and the four Weber sisters, daughters of a musical family, share a crowded, artistic life in a ramshackle house. While their father scrapes by as a music copyist and their mother secretly draws up a list of prospective suitors in the kitchen, the sisters struggle with their futures, both marital and musical—until twenty-one-year-old Wolfgang Mozart walks into their lives.
Enjoy complimentary wine, Stephanie's insights and Mozart anecdotes, and music by the Midsummer Mozart Chamber Players. Repertoire includes string quartets no. 7 and 21, and a set of arias sung by Guest Artist Christina Major accompanied by Music Director Paul Schrage.
Stephanie Cowell is a recipient of an American Book Award for excellence in literature. Her historical novel, Marrying Mozart, was published in seven languages and has been optioned for a movie.
A limited number of books will be for sale.
