Event Description: 

Philadelphia native Sylvia Berry has performed extensively at home and abroad as a soloist and chamber musician. Ms. Berry specializes in performing on early keyboard instruments (fortepiano, harpsichord) as well as the performance practices of the 18th and early 19th centuries. She is known not only for her exciting performances, but for her engaging commentary about the music and the instruments she plays.

Join Sylvia for an evening of music performed on the kind of piano Mozart himself played. Works will include Mozart's popular Sonata in C major, K. 545, whose opening melody is known the world over; his ebullient and virtuosic Sonata in F major; and a group of little-known shorter works. Works of Haydn and Clementi will also make an appearance.Advanced tickets are $10, $8 for members and children 12 and under. $12 and $10 at the door.  For advanced tickets, click here.
