The season finale of the “MSO Presents” series is a fantastic doubleheader! First, classical aficionados will be thrilled by Mozart’s Quartet No. 21 in D Major, K. 575. Written at the height of his prowess as a chamber composer, this piece was dedicated to the King of Prussia in 1789, and remains in the repertoire of the modern chamber ensemble to this day. Local MSO members strings are: ldiko Lusk (violin), Samatha Parker (violin), Robin Baggarly (viola), Mark Mc Cleery (cello). Second, MSO principal percussionist Mel Mobley joins the quartet for his original composition for string quartet and marimba.
