|Greetings from the East!
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is one of the most influential composers and musicians of the 18thcentury. He was a child protégé, playing his violin and keyboards for royalty at the age of 5. He grew up in Salzburg and later moved to Vienna. In Vienna, he was admitted as an Entered Apprentice to Zur Wohitatigkeit lodge(Beneficence) on 12/14/1984, passed to his Fellow Craft degree on 1/7/1785, and became a Master Mason shortly thereafter. Mozart was only a mason for a short period of 7 years. His time was not wasted, composing many beautiful pieces, including the Masonic funeral music. His last opera, The Magic Flute, is considered to be strongly influenced by Masonry.
Congratulations to Brothers Richard Melady, Michael Sparrow, and Stephen Carlson to being passed to the Fellow Craft degrees.
