(Various locations in Lviv)
Franz Xaver Mozart, the son of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was a well-known teacher, pianist, conductor and composer. In 1808-1838, he resided in Lviv and was part of its music environment, founding the Saint Cecilia choir that became the first music community in the city. This year, Lviv celebrates his legacy with a week program of exhibitions and lectures, Baroque vocal music, and organ and a chamber concert. On August 25, the Lviv Opera House will host Oksana Lyniv, currently chief conductor of the Graz Opera, with Bundesjugendorchester and the Youth Symphonic Orchestra of Ukraine.
