The Lansing Symphony Orchestra has welcomed many collaborators over the years. The latest is the East Lansing Film Festival: ELFF and LSO have teamed up to present director René Féret´s 2011 French drama "Mozart´s Sister" at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Hannah Community Center in East Lansing.
The film takes a speculative look at the life of Maria Anna Walburga Ignatia Mozart (Marie Féret), Wolfgang’s older sister, commonly known as Nannerl. A gifted musician and composer in her own right, Nannerl was destined to be overshadowed by her younger sibling. She was even scolded for attempting to play the violin, which her father considered an unsuitable choice for a young lady in the 1760s.
General admission tickets are $10.
