The concert will highlight Mozart, Tchaikovsky as well as a northern Wisconsin composer who has never had any formal training.
Jerry Edinger is from Kennan, WI and is a construction worker. On the side, he is a classical composer with style similar to Mozart.
Edinger says he had a moment of realization at age 29 while at a Christmas party and he heard orchestral music by J.S. Bach. He went to the record store and bought an LP featuring Mozart. After listening, Edinger says the music spoke to him.
Now he has composed countless symphonies and his Symphony No. 12 will be performed by the ECCO.
