NJSO presents “Mozart the Boy Wonder” at Toms River library

TOMS RIVER –   The Toms River branch of the Ocean County Library, 101 Washington St., will host the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra Chamber Players as they present “Mozart the Boy Wonder” Sunday Feb. 24 at 2 p.m.

The program traces Wolfgang Mozart’s development from child prodigy to master composer and demonstrates the ingenious techniques that define his musical style.

Mozart, one of history’s youngest composers, learned to write symphonies, operas and chamber music from his father, Leopold.

The young Mozart matured rapidly as a composer, writing some of 18th-century Europe’s most progressive and influential works.

This hour-long program will include musical performances by the orchestra’s string quartet. Selections include compositions by Leopold and Wolfgang Mozart.

This family program is free and open to the public but registration is required. Visit the library’s Website www.theoceancountylibrary.org or telephone the operator at (732) 349-6200 or (609) 971-0514 to register.

The program is sponsored by an OceanFirst Foundation Arts and Cultural Grant, presented to the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra in support of its Resources for Education and Community Harmony (REACH) program.

The REACH program sends smaller orchestras out to the community and enables the NJSO to engage more audiences throughout the state. It also allows the orchestra to customize a program and meet the specific needs of an audience.
