Highlights of the all day program include Mozart’s Piano Sonata No. 8 A minor K 310, Piano Sonata No. 11 A major K 331, the iconic Clarinet Concerto, Oboe Quartet and a violin concerto, closing with Serenade No. 13 in G major, K 525.

The marathon will be held in Hawthorn Arts Centre, 360 Burwood Road, Hawthorn.  It will be made up of six sessions  with the first session commencing at 9.30 am and the last session finishing at 9.30 pm.  

As part of the Marathon, 3MBS are planning to open a second stage with a children’s education component for 4 – 12 year olds that will showcase Mozart’s life and music through fun and exploratory narrated adventure. There will be two 45 minute concerts; one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
