My authorship of The Chronicles of a Modern-Day Mozartian began in 2006 with the celebration of Mozart's 250th birthday anniversary. From sharing stories of my travels to publishing interviews with leading industry professionals and world premiere exclusives, I've continued to fill its pages with articles designed to inform, inspire and connect Mozart's audiences around the world.
Although social media has in many ways replaced the application of its platform, The Chronicles will always retain its sentiment and purpose. It represents the tender beginnings of my journey, the avenue through which I experimented and stumbled, all in the name of finding my voice and vocation. From a reluctant blogger to a recognized advocate of Salzburg's native son, The Chronicles narrates my story like a close friend.
Originally intended as a short-term venture for the 2006 Mozart Year, The Chronicles became something more as it gained longevity. Far exceeding its role as a holding place for creativity, text and imagery, it graduated from being functional to familial. It created a community, a Mozartian "Main Street" of familiar faces where friendship and discovery, nostalgia and wonder, were nurtured.
As The Chronicles celebrates its decennial anniversary this year, I'm energized by its achievements and excited about its possibilities. Thank you all for being a part of this grand adventure!
With Warmth and Gratitude,
