Dedicated to fresh interpretations of Mozart's most enduring masterworks, the Midsummer Mozart Festival continues with an intimate evening that features special guest author Stephanie Cowell. Following early success as a prize-winning writer, Stephanie Cowell trained as a classical vocalist, appearing in operas and forming her own singing ensemble and chamber opera company. After translating a late Mozart opera, she returned to writing and has since written numerous critically-acclaimed novels including the popular Claude & Camille: A Novel of Monet (2011).

The evening will feature anecdotes, insights and readings from Marrying Mozart (2004), Cowell's historical fourth novel that takes readers back to the 18th century and explores the struggles of the Weber sisters and the early career of the 21-year old Mozart. The novel has since been translated into seven languages and optioned for a movie, with the Los Angeles Times calling it a "perfect harmony of fact, fiction" and described by the Seattle Times as a "grand little mini-opera, filled with twists of affection, musical politics, love, loss and chocolate."

Coloratura Soprano Christina Major, who makes her first of three appearances during this year's festival, will sing three arias accompanied on the piano by Music Director Paul Schrage: Nehmt meinen Dank, Non mi dir, bell'idol, andEt Incarnatus Est. String quartets No. 7 in E flat major, K.160 and No. 21 in D major, K. 575 will be performed by resident festival ensemble, the Midsummer Mozart Festival Chamber Players, including Concertmaster Robin Hansen, Ani Bukujian, Marcel Gemperli and Eric Gaenslen.
