Happy Birthday, Wolfgang!

Today is the 254th anniversary of the birth of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, prolific composer and Freemason. His opera, The Magic Flute is said to be a Masonic opera.

You could judge for yourself. I received a message from Worshipful Brother Alan Peterson about a performance of that piece. See the message below, and, if it fits your schedule, you very well may wish to take it in!

Sunday April 18th at 1:30 pm, the University of Minnesota school of Music is performing our departed Brother Mozart’s, The Magic Flute. This opera has a magic concoction of singspiel, fairy-tale and Masonic ideology. 45 minutes prior to the performance, the director David Walsh will host a discussion about the opera in the lobby and you are welcomed to ask questions or listen to what is discussed.

Tickets are $20 per person or $10 if you are alumni, students and staff of the University. To order tickets you can either call 612-624-2345 or order online at for the performance. It is open seating.

Can I suggest that you make a special day of it by having lunch with others, either/or Mason’s or other people of your life, before the performance?If you have any questions, feel free to call me at 651-248-9926
