What would come to be known as the Mostly Mozart Festival began in August 1966, taking advantage of recently built Lincoln Center's air-conditioning. While climate control is no longer a novelty among concert halls, the huge popularity of the event endures, a testament to the artistic achievements of Wolfgang Amadeus himself, as well as the organizers' curatorial prowess. Thanks to inexpensive ticket prices, the festival attracts its fair share of classical music novices in addition to longtime aficionados. For more information, visit mostlymozart.org.
