The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra takes on twice the Mozart in this two-weekend event that takes them from their usual venue (the Marcus Center) to more historic digs. The first series, conducted by Ben Gernon and featuring Narek Hakhnazaryan, is more diverse, with two Mozart symphonies bookending responses to that classical period by Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky. The second, conducted by Courtney Lewis, concludes the festival with Mozart’s final symphony, “Jupiter,” after a performance of his earlier Symphony No. 28 and Stravinsky’s Apollon musagète.
March 31 to April 2; April 8 to 10 at the Pabst Theater, Milwaukee. $20 to $90. pabsttheater.org, mso.org.
