University of Dayton (Dayton, OH 45469-0001)
Richard P. Benedum (Project Director: March 2007 to July 2009)
Mozart's Worlds

A four-week summer institute in Vienna, Austria, for twenty-five school teachers to study the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in its cultural and historical context.

The University of Dayton seeks support for a four-week interdisciplinary Institute, "Mozart's Worlds," for 25 K-12 teachers chosen from across the country. The Institute will be held in Vienna, Austria from June 16 to July 11, 2008, and will study intensively selected works from Mozart's Salzburg years and two operas--The Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni--along with other instrumental music. The Institute will not only immerse participants and faculty members in Mozart's music, but also in 18th-century Habsburg history and Enlightenment philosophy, the dramatic and literary conventions that Mozart used so successfully in his operas, and in Austrian art and architecture of the period.
