MozART Group at Troy Music Hall October 25
“We exist despite the sober formality of great concert halls, despite the boredom of classical musicians’ life, despite fanatic lovers of classical music, despite fans of rock, rap or pop who are afraid of classical music. We treat our Muse with a humorous irony and we’re sure, she will have nothing against it!” – MozART Group
The MozART Group is coming to Troy Music Hall for a laughter filled evening of classical music mixed with humor October 25th at 7:30. Tickets are on sale now.
All four gentlemen of the MozART Group are well-educated instrumentalists who graduated from prestigious Academies of Music in Warsaw and Lódz but decided to play classical music in a humorous way. The MozART Group created a worldwide unique musical cabaret, where the music, not the words are the source of joy and laughter.
Take a classical composition as canvas, analyze its structure and theme, surround it with musical associations and brilliant, outstanding ideas, and while listening to the final product the listener is constantly surprised, amazed, moved to laughter and tears.
The musicians of the MozART Group have been playing together since 1995. In the beginning, they presented short musical jokes on Canal Plus Television and gave their first debut in 1997 at the PAKA competition of young Polish cabaret acts in Krakow. In the same year, they presented their first cabaret program entitled “Mozart’s Still Alive” and since then, they have given concerts across Europe, North America, and Asia. The quartet also performs with colleagues around the world including shows with the mime Irek Krosny and the multitalented Bobby McFerrin.
The MozART Group is a frequent TV guest including international galas and concerts. The quartet received prestigious prizes like the Grand Prix of the XVIII Festival of Satire and Comedy in Lidzbark; “Pingwin z brazu” (the Bronze Penguin) – the prize given by the cabaret community of Zielona Gora, an informal capitol of Polish cabaret, and two Golden Troughs at the RYJEK Festival in Rybnik. In 2010, the MozART Group received a special prize from the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Poland for outstanding achievements and fifteen years on stage. GAGY, the European Humor Festival, awarded the MozART Group the Grand Prix at the 31st Festival in 2011. In March 2013, they were awarded all three main prizes at the 10th “Festival des Artes Burlesques” in St. Etienne: the Grand Prix of the Jury, the Audience Award, and the Press Award.
The group frequently tours all over the world, and will close 2019 with a 65-show residency at the Bobino Theatre in the heart of Paris.
