Friday Favorites: Mozart's birthday, busy Ravel and co-host Colleen Bur

Friday Favorites - Jan. 27, 2023

On Friday Favorites for Jan. 27, 2023, there were 267 candles on Mozart’s birthday cake. Sarah in Northfield won the unofficial award for best description of a piece of music: “The first part of the Ravel Piano Concerto is earth-shatteringly beautiful. It takes the cold out of winter. Then it gets all busy, like Target on a Saturday.” And Project DJ co-host Colleen Bur, a recent vocal performance graduate from Lawrence University, shared her favorite bubble tea recipe (while also defining the term bubble tea)!
