Blair School and Nashville Symphony present ‘Amadeus,’ April 8

The Blair School partners with the Nashville Symphony for the second year to host a free screening of a music-related movie in conjunction with a Symphony performance.

This year, the Blair School is pleased to bring you Amadeus, Miloš Forman’s 1984 masterpiece about the lives of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his bitterly jealous rival, Antonio Salieri. The movie won 40 major awards the year it was released; its eight Academy Awards included the coveted Best Picture title. It has since been recognized as one of the classics of American cinema.

The screening takes place at 7 p.m. April 8 in Ingram Hall. It will be introduced by Blair School and Nashville Symphony musician Roger Wiesmeyer. Nashville Symphony musicians Jeremy Williams and Zach Casebolt, violins, Chris Farrell, viola, Keith Nicholas, cello, and Joel Reist, bass, will join Wiesmeyer (on piano) to perform the Allegro movement from Mozart’s Piano Concerto K414.

This screening is held in conjunction with the Nashville Symphony’s All Mozart! concerts, April 25-26 at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, which feature guest pianist Benedetto Lupo and guest conductor Christopher Seaman.
