Piano Concert for Mozart’s Birthday At Belle Isle Library


What constitutes the genius of musical composition?  “Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.”

And those are the words of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, music’s great gift to the world and the virtual birthday boy on Sunday, January 26 at 2:00 p.m. when Belle Isle Library presents noted pianist Wayne McEvilly playing Mozart’s first three piano sonatas. Belle Isle Library is located at 5501 N. Villa.

“Mozart’s real birthday is January 27, so we’re a day early,” said librarian Ann Meeks.  “I don’t think Mozart would mind if it meant he got two birthday parties.  Happy 258th, Herr Mozart!”

“A Mozart Piano Concert” is free and open to the public.  People are encouraged to arrive early as space is limited.
