Doc Holliday, a customer who believes he is really Doc Holliday re-incarnated, claims to be the fastest gun in the west.

Mozart (his nickname) is a songwriter. His girl, Candy Delicious, uses every seductive trick in the book in order to star in the new musical Mozart thinks he can write. The camera man from the local cable TV station arrives to save the day by broadcasting their story. Unfortunately, he's chased away by the advances of a gay professional wrestler. However, all is saved at the last moment, the issues are resolved, and, in a surprise ending, Doc Holliday becomes a hero. Produced by Special Arrangement with Ron Grant

The wonderfully talented Baltimore pianist Chungwon Chung joins the Orchestra in this, one of Mozart’s masterworks! The concert will also include Barber's moving Adagio for Strings as well as Festive Overture by Shostakovich and Russian Easter Overture by Rimsky-Korsakov. This concert is SSO's annual side-by-side concert, where talented high school musicians have the opportunity to perform with a mature orchestra.
