Me at Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Birthday Party!

THROWBACK THURDAY

Today is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's birthday. He was born in 1756 and his music is just as extraordinary today as it was when he was alive. In honor of his memory, I hope you get to listen to some of his music.

It may sound crazy but have you ever gone to a Mozart's birthday party? I had the honors of attending one in his Memory in Maine in the 1990's. It was a masquerade ball! I wore a long black evening gown and I carried my mask with pink feathers!  

THIS IS ME!!!


They served the finest Champagne with Strawberries and the music was divine! All night long I got to see live musicians perform Mozart's Classics. I listened, danced, and had FUN! From what they told us, Mozart was quite comical and loved to play games. We played Musical Chairs and it was hysterical watching  women in gowns and men in costumes wearing wigs playing such a silly children's game. But it was fun! 

 

My friend Denise, the Camp Nurse and I ditched our camp clothes and got dressed up for the ball. We had fun, sipping champagne (much better than camp bug juice), meeting distinguished guests like this Professor from the University, and other people dressed up for the occasion. 

 

This guy made me laugh. Neither one of us knew how to dance to that old time music but boy did we have fun making up the dance our way!

 

Here's me and Denise with our masks on. We worked at Wyonegonic Camps in Denmark, Maine. After the Masquerade Ball we found some old barn and heard music. We were curious and discovered there were people inside clogging! Until that day, I never heard there was such a thing as clogging to music! We both picked up a couple of guys who were trying to teach us and we laughed, and laughed all night long!

 

So that's it for Throwback Thursday. I hope I brought you a smile or some laughter. Life is short. Have fun! Dance and don't worry about what you're wearing, how you dance, if you can dance, or who you're dancing with - nobody is perfect! Believe it or not there were days when wearing a mask was FUN! This too shall pass... Happy Thursday one and all --- Patricia

Oh yes! George Souto - I have very happy memories of that evening. It was as if angels gave me resuscitation with a fresh new breath of life. It's a memory I will keep forever.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - Thank you for coming back to me! I was at the dentist office on Tuesday getting my teeth cleaned. This Masquerade Ball cleansed my soul and I was filled with the fuel I needed so desperately at that time in my life. I'm glad you can see my daughter in me. You also gave me a smile and very happy for your return visit. We must indulge ourselves with joy every chance we get! I wish you magic and a joyful spirit always. Thank you.

I had no idea there was a birthday for Mozart. How fun! I was that mom who played Mozart for my babies when they were little.

Endre Barath, Jr. - I had a feeling you were just as much a fan of Mozart and the Classics as I am. Appreciation for the classical arts in music is a shared gift of happiness. From the ears, to the brain, and down into our soul there is a feeling of surrender and relaxation. Is there any better location to have lobster than New England?

Brian England - after all I had been through, the Masquerade Ball was my breakout moment from all the suffering and sadness in the previous years.

Hi Patricia:

I had no idea yesterday was the big day...I may have to listen to some of his music tonight?

Love those photos, especially the one of you in the gown. What a fun party that must have been. Rather a chilly time of year to be in Maine unless it was another time of year!! I used to be able to play some of the easier Mozart pieces on the piano, but that was decades ago. He's one of my favorites of the classical composers. Did you ever see the movie "Amadeus?"

Jeff Dowler, CRS - Denise, the Camp Nurse and I remain friends and have met outside of the summer season in Maine. She is always traveling to see her son or grandchildren, family and friends all over! As single moms, we have a lot of fun, wherever we go. 

Any day is a good day to listen to Mozart! I started playing the piano in fifth grade until 8th grade. My elementary school had a Baby Grand. In High School I would go to a Community Activity Center in my Chicago neighborhood to practice on their old Up-Right Piano! That was a challenge but I stayed on that piano until my parents bought me a spinet. By then, I was almost ready to get married. It never sounded like a Baby Grand, but I did okay! When I got married, my parents kept the piano and it wasn't until I had my children that my spouse bought me a used one for Christmas. I signed up for lessons as an Adult and played for several years. But here in Texas, I really wish I could continue piano lessons with a qualified piano teacher and a new piano because this one is out-of-tune since the house fire in IL. I'm not as good as I used to be and I want to learn more!

Patricia,  I love Mozart, who hated the flute but wrote a three gorgeous concertos and three quartets for flute and strings, and they are all great fun to play.  This looked like a party I'd have loved to attend!

Patricia loved all the bantering back and forth with the other comments, so with that said if you love lobster no there is nothing better than Maine Lobster:)Endre

Endre Barath, Jr. - Actually, you may think it's sinful, but I'm not a lobster lover. If I ever met up with you in New England, I would gladly let you have my lobster! I also enjoyed all the comments I received on this post. It did me a lot of good to receive all these comments. My kids love lobster and they would vouch for you, there is no better place to get live lobsters and eat them than Maine. 😊

Patricia Kennedy - He was a musical genius with a funny personality who connected to people of all ages and he continues to influence students around the world! I am so in awe by his compositions, symphonies, concertos, etc. If my memory is correct weren't you a famous violinist? I hope you write about your musical talent to refresh my memory.

Haha Patricia indeed that is sinful:)) I remember when my father moved back to Hungary he lamented about missing the Maine Lobsters... so when he came visiting us we always ordered or should I say he had it shipped from Maine to California and we had some great meals... I should dig up some old photos and post them:)) Endre
