Local Spotlight: Festival Mozaic

Posted: Updated:

For the next 10 days in the San Luis Obispo area, you can catch some of the best music ever written, played by world class musicians, in a variety of settings at Festival Mozaic.

Locals gathered to listen to a free orchestra rehearsal Friday afternoon at Cuesta College. The festival's music list spans centuries, including chamber music written for groups from two to eight musicians, concerti with soloists and full symphonies.

On Friday, the crowd heard the Concerto for Harpsichord in D minor by Johann Sebastian Bach, which is featured in Saturday's show at Chapel Serra in Shandon.

Saturday's concert is already sold out, but there are many more performances to come with tickets still available, including some free shows during the "Midday Mini-concert" series in Cambria, Los Osos and San Luis Obispo.

"Regardless of whether you know anything about music or not," explains Bettina Swigger, the festival's executive director. "It's like going to a professional sporting event. I mean these guys are... they're like superstar athletes and this is their Olympics."

Other highlights next week include "Mozart in the Mission" with an outdoor simulcast in the plaza on Wednesday, with a big screen and speakers piping the music from indoors to out.

Next Thursday, KSBY will stream a performance of "The Trout Quintet" by Franz Schubert.
