Mozart was 5 years old when he composed his first piece. And more than 250 years later, musicians of all stripes are still playing his music. Some of them are even kids, just as he once was. And you can listen to them play at the Orchestra Concerto Showcase, where members of the Santa Rosa Symphony Youth Orchestra will be performing not only Mozart’s work, but also pieces by Mendelssohn, Weber, Vaughn Williams, and other masters. See the recitals on January 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts in Sebastopol. Tickets are $10–$15 and may be purchased at sebarts.org/sca-events. Proceeds benefit the Santa Rosa Symphony Institute of Music Education.
