About




Sherry Davis is a Music Heritage Preservationist specializing in the advocacy of Wolfgang Amadé Mozart. Her authorship of The Chronicles of a Modern-Day Mozartian began in 2006 with the celebration of Mozart's 250th birthday anniversary. The intention was to create a platform where she could bring a readership closer to Mozart using her own experiences with the music and history as a conduit for establishing rapport and a sense of community. Through her newfound voice, Sherry began to re-imagine the way in which Mozart was communicated, shared and defined by a public familiar with his name primarily through stigma and mythology. 

By enhancing the history through a change in presentation to create accessibility, excitement and relevance, Sherry connects audiences to Mozart through engaging narrative, historical insight and playful banter. From scholarship to popular culture, she brings Mozart into perspective through the prism of the 18th Century with a flourish of contemporary bearing, humor and charm. Sherry subscribes to a philosophy that is rooted in reinforcing enthusiasm for Mozart's immortal themes of love, enlightenment and fraternal union.

Through her interdisciplinary education and experience in the humanities, social sciences and communications, Sherry leverages a comprehensive and unique approach to advocating Mozart's music and biography to both specialized and general audiences. From managing a film theatrical release to coordinating a regional television program, facilitating outreach campaigns for opera in cinema and serving on a committee to restore an historic landmark, Sherry has become a capable advocate of Salzburg's native son. Full of new and exciting ways to present Mozart to audiences, her work is recognized and consulted by educators, professionals and enthusiasts at home and abroad.

Sherry used the findings from her master's thesis to construct the foundation of her work and professional identity. Her primary goal is to create awareness of Mozart's musical, historical and cultural significance to cultivate sustainability through appreciation and patronage.
