Now in its fifth year, MOZART ON THE GREEN is a chamber music festival inspired by the spirit of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the beautiful surroundings of Athens. The MOZART ON THE GREEN Festival and Academy will host renowned musicians and OU faculty to teach young musicians during the day and present world-class chamber music concerts in the evenings. The evening performances, hour-long casual concerts hosted nightly in several different locations around the city, promise to deliver delightful and inspiring sounds for audiences of all ages.

Students attending the OU Summer Music Camp will have the opportunity to participate in the festival, with chamber music performances on Saturday.

Concerts are all free, although donations are gratefully accepted at the evening performances.
