Our mission is to enrich the lives of today’s and tomorrow’s passionate music lovers by connecting them to the genius and innovation of Mozart and the Masters, to world-class musicians and music-making, and to each other.
For thirty years, Mainly Mozart has been a mission-driven organization with one guiding inspiration: Mozart. His music, his mastery, and all that he embodied as a multi-faceted man inspires our mission and vision—and is what sets us apart. Mozart personifies much more than classical music. He exemplifies prodigy, composer, genius, innovator, collaborator—and Mainly Mozart is driven to express these qualities in everything we produce.
