Barbara Kennedy of USF writes:

"What a delightful surprise it was when recently I visited a little church in Safety Harbor for a concert celebrating the 250th anniversary of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The concert was produced and conducted by Dr. Gene Szonntagh, the music director and organist for Church of the Holy Spirit. The entire choir sang stirring exerpts from four of Mozart's compositions accompanied by Dr. Szonntagh on the organ, and other instrumentalists on chimes, flute, percucssion and English horn. Added to this was Dr. Szonntagh's wonderfully interesting mini-lectures "teaching" the audience about the composer, instruments and music. I felt compelled to write about my enjoyment of what I saw and heard, joining in the celebration of Mozart's birth."
