The Mostly Mozart Festival is a summer series of concerts held at Lincoln Center in New York and in other city venues. Currently, the artistic director is Jane Moss while the music director is Louis Langrée. The annual summer festival features performances by the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra, as well as opera, dance, chamber music, and contemporary performances. In recent years, the Festival initiated a popular series of late-night performances in the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse, called “A Little Night Music.” The Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra is the resident orchestra of the Mostly Mozart Festival and is the only orchestra in the U.S. dedicated to the music of the Classical period. Members of the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra come from all over the world, performing in premier orchestras and ensembles.

Co-founded by impresario Jay K. Hoffman and William Lockwood, Midsummer Serenades – A Mozart Festival began on August 1, 1966. This program, made possible by Lincoln Center’s new, air-conditioned halls, would eventually turn into what is today the Mostly Mozart Festival. On January 27, 1991, The Mozart Bicentennial at Lincoln Center opened with concerts held at Avery Fisher Hall and the Metropolitan Opera House. It was the world’s largest and most comprehensive tribute to the life and works of Mozart. The 2014 festival took place from July 25th to August 23rd at various venues around Lincoln Center, as well as the Park Avenue Armory. The 50th anniversary season, in 2016, will feature opera, dance, a world premiere by David Lang for a chorus of 1,000 singers, and 50 new works performed by the International Contemporary Ensemble, as well as an exhibition at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts showcasing the history of the Festival. In 2006, it celebrated its 40th anniversary and the 250th anniversary of its namesake Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s birth. As it has done for many years, it is performing many of “Mozart’s works and also a variety of musical works created after his death that were inspired and influenced by his genius”.
