In 1984 the film Amadeus took the world by storm, creating a brand new outlook on what was seen as a stodgy, traditional musical genre. The stigma of classical musicians during the past century has been that of being uptight, boring, and even unneeded in the modern world. However, films like Amadeus show these musicians and composers as being just as exciting, outrageous, and entertaining as today’s celebrity artists. To reinforce this fact, the Fort Collins Chamber Music Society is presenting a special screening of Amadeus together with a pre-show reception, an event called “Too Many Notes: Amadeus.”
Along with the screening of the academy award winning movie, musicians from the Fort Collins Chamber Music Society will kick off the event by performing a selection of music ranging from Mozart to the Shins, all while wearing Henry Award-winning period costumes from OpenStage’s recent production of Amadeus. In addition to FCCMS’s live music, actors Jonathan Farwell, who played the role of Antonio Salieri in the touring version of the Broadway stage production of Amadeus, and Stetson Weddle, who has played Mozart in numerous stage productions of the film, will also be performing.
