The Men Behind the Music

"The music you love, and the incredible stories of the men who wrote it"

The Fort la Reine Museum will be hosting Haley Marie, flutist and artistic director of Genius and Drama a concert featuring music from Bach, Mozart and Handel. 

They are known as the biggest musical geniuses of all time. Centuries after their death, scholars are still studying their compositions, musicians are still learning their music. But who were these men? What did people think of them when they were alive? And what inspired them so much that they were driven to write music that seems to have made them immortal?

The Men Behind the Music is a concert production created by Yale-educated flutist Haley Marie, who is inspired by the possibility of creating a new way for audiences to experience classical music. Film segments are used instead of program notes to introduce audiences to the world in which some of the most famous classical pieces were written, giving audiences a glimpse into the dramatic and often surprising history behind the music that will be performed.
