“Mozart’s Sister” Presented by the Kosciuszko Foundation


 NEW YORK–  The Kosciuszko Foundation is showcasing Sylvia Milo in “Mozart’s Sister”  with one showing on Sunday January 22, 2012 at 5:00 p.m.   Milo is a veteran stage performer and she conceived the concept that is including other Polish musicians and theater performers.

The storyline tells of Maria Anna (Marianne) Mozart who was a keyboard virtuoso, composer, and child prodigy in her own right.  She toured Europe often in the late 1700’s and performed with her more famous younger brother, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.  When they were children Maria Anna was the headliner.  She was often billed as Nannerl Mozart. 

Milo, originally from Warsaw, Poland, graduated from New York University and the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute.  She currently performs in repertory at the Flea Theater in NYC.  Sylvia is also an accomplished acoustic and electric violinist.
There was a French film released in 2010 with the same title, starring Marie Feret.
