Golden Hornet Project (GHP) has launched a project to complete Mozart's unfinished Requiem, in collaboration with composers from the rock, hip-hop, video game and avant-garde music scenes.

To support this monster project, which will be completed and presented to the public in 2014, we have been hosting a series of fundraising screenings of the film AMADEUS over the last couple years.

Each screening will include a live choral performance of The Requiem work-in-progress performed by members of Texas Choral Consort with GHP co-artistic directors Peter Stopschinski and Graham Reynolds in attendance.

Mozart Requiem Undead will be the opening event of the 2014 Fusebox Festival, Austin’s annual hybrid arts festival champions adventurous works of art across a variety of different mediums, in April.

Based on the stage play by Peter Shaffer, AMADEUS tells the tale of Salieri, a famous composer who is tormented and ultimately goes mad because of his jealousy of the infinitely more talented Mozart.

His utter mediocrity when compared to Mozart is too much to bear, and Salieri hatches a plan to kill the brilliant composer.
