Mozart documentary, concert set for Friday

Cinephiles and music lovers will pay tribute to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s 250th birthday on Friday, Nov. 10.

The documentary “In Search of Mozart” will be shown at the LSUS University Center in Shreveport. The 7:30 p.m. screening will be preceded by a 7 p.m. concert by the Premier String Quartet.

“In Search of Mozart,” directed by Phil Grabsky, investigates the famous composer's life and mind.

Perhaps more importantly, can it explain the relative disappearance from movies of the incredible Tom Hulce? "Where's Boofy?" (I think he's in "Stranger than Fiction," thank goodness.)

Door admission is $5. LSUS staff and students get in free if they show a current ID. Proceeds will benefit the event’s sponsoring organizations, the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra and the Robinson Film Center. For more information call the SSO at (318) 222-7496 or the film center at (318) 424-9090.

The quartet is made up of Shreveport Symphony Orchestra members: concertmaster Kermit Poling, assistant concertmaster Elizabeth O’Bannon, acting principal violist Adrienne Gabriel and principal cellist Ruth Drummond.
