Joseph Caulkins is known for his adventurous and bold programming for Sarasota’s Symphonic Chorus. World premieres, unique collaborations and rarely performed works, alongside classical masterworks, have become his trademark. Join the Maestro at the elegant Bijou Café for Behind the Music as he shares his insight and passion about”Mozart’s Unfinished Masterpiece.” Composed in thanksgiving for his wife Constanze’s recovery from illness, and in hopes of winning his father’s approval of their marriage, Mozart’s Great Mass in C Minor would have rivaled Bach’s monumental B Minor Mass in scope and scale, had he completed it. Learn the mystery behind one of Mozart’s most powerful and virtuosic works for choir and orchestra.
