Presented by Singapore bassoonist Jo Anne Sukumaran, ‘Letters to Mozart‘ is an interdisciplinary presentation and demystification of Mozart’s music and life through the performance of his chamber music and narration of his personal letters to family.
Mozart was famous for writing letters to his family and these letters often show an uncensored side to his personality and life. By re-telling the story of Mozart’s life and through his own words, audiences are invited to revisit his music with fresh eyes and participate in a conversation with Mozart by posting their own letters of appreciation to him or uploading simple drawings on a storytelling platform called HeadUp.
