HAMILTON, ON – Linus Entertainment and the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra present the world premiere of THE MOZART EFFECT: LIVE!™ A SYMPHONY FOR THE SENSES. This 30-piece symphony and immersive multimedia concert experience takes place on January 26, 2019 at 7:30pm at Burlington Performing Arts Centre.

Based on the genius of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and featuring his most popular works, The Mozart Effect: Live! takes the presentation of live symphony orchestra to an entirely new place. Performed by the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra and accompanied by high definition large format immersive video and visual effects, The Mozart Effect: Live! is curated to stimulate the senses, inspire and engage the deepest corners of the human psyche.

Timed to the dynamics of the HPO’s performance of Mozart’s timeless music, the visual presentation takes the audience from the farthest reaches of space through awe inspiring flights over mountains and into the deepest canyons, to human relationships. These visuals are married with special lighting effects and live video close-ups of HPO musicians and Conductor Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser. The result is a sensory enhanced symphonic aural and visual experience with moments of intimate performance nuance and powerful climactic peaks.

The transformational power of music to stimulate human cognitive processes, improve memory and enhance focus using music therapy, were first explored by educator Don Campbell in his best-selling book The Mozart Effect. Don Campbell subsequently curated a series of themed albums of Mozart’s music that sold millions of copies. By special permission of his estate, Don Campbell’s innovative teaching concepts were the inspiration to bring The Mozart Effect: Live! to the concert stage.

The creators of The Mozart Effect: Live!have two main objectives: to leave audiences enlightened, invigorated and having experienced something entirely unlike any other concert or theatrical event and introduce live orchestra to new audiences.

The Mozart Effect: Live! featuring the music of one of the world’s most popular composers is the perfect introduction to newcomers to live orchestral music and a new adventure for the symphony enthusiast.
