The Age of Elegance: An engaging look at the evolution of music during the 18th century.

Jean Wong has put together a fascinating collection of photos and video clips in order to not only view the music of the 18th century in its historical context, but also focus on the inventive genius of Joseph Haydn, the unsurpassed musicality of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the thunderous achievements of Ludwig van Beethoven. The audience will experience a new understanding and appreciation of the rich tapestry that makes up this musical journey. There will also be some live classical music to enjoy.

Jean Wong is a pianist and member of the Upbeat Trio and Twenty Fingers. She is also an award winning author writing fiction, memoir, poetry. Her work has been produced at Sixth Street Playhouse and a variety of other theatrical venues. She is the author of Sleeping with the Gods, and Hurtling Jade and Other Tales of Personal Folly.
