Mozart's music has been used to sell cars, Nikes, pancakes, instant coffee iPods, cable service - even dog food. It has appeared in such wide-ranging films as Batman, Alien, The Shawshank Redemption, Elvira Madigan, The Bonfire of Vanities, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, and There's Something About Mary, among countless others. Mozart has proved his enduring power not only in the concert hall but in how many times his music has been used in pop culture. This concert will feature Mozart's pieces that have taken on a new life in American popular culture and are familiar to everyone, even those who have never set foot in a concert hall.
