NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/18/14 -- Lincoln Center's Mostly Mozart Festival, which is celebrating its 48th season, is New York's most acclaimed summer celebration of classical music. This summer, Quin Arts, an exclusive arts and culture program of the newly opened Quin hotel at West 57th Street and Sixth Avenue, will partner as a member of the Lincoln Center Corporate Fund to offer its guests a special opportunity not available to the general public. Guests of the Quin selecting the Mostly Mozart Experience, available during July and August 2014, will receive two tickets to any of four daytime dress rehearsals at Avery Fisher Hall. Ideal for an inspiring long summer weekend or mid-week stay, the experience includes unique insider access offered by the hotel's Attaché. The sought-after full dress rehearsals feature the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra conducted by Music Director Louis Langrée on three dates, and an additional date led by guest conductor Osmo Vänskä. The dress rehearsals are scheduled for July 29th and August 8th, 15th and 22nd.
Quin Arts honors the rich musical history and artistic heritage of the original 1929 hotel on the site, now fully transformed, which hosted legendary Met Opera stars as residents for decades, including Giuseppe De Luca, Giovanni Martinelli, renowned bass-baritone Paul Schöffler and legendary soprano Renata Tebaldi. The hotel was also home to the composer Ignacy Jan Paderewski for more than a decade. Located in the heart of Manhattan's cultural district diagonally adjacent to Carnegie Hall and just blocks from Lincoln Center, the Quin is New York City's newest luxury lifestyle hotel.

ABOUT THE MOSTLY MOZART FESTIVAL
Lincoln Center's Mostly Mozart Festival -- America's first indoor summer music festival -- was launched as an experiment in 1966. Called Midsummer Serenades: A Mozart Festival, its first two seasons were devoted exclusively to the music of Mozart. Renamed the Mostly Mozart Festival in 1970, it has become a New York institution and, now in its 48th year, continues to broaden its focus to include works by Mozart's predecessors, contemporaries, and related successors. It is currently the only group in the United States dedicated to the classical period. In addition to concerts by the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra, Mostly Mozart now includes concerts by visiting period-instrument ensembles, chamber orchestras and ensembles, and acclaimed soloists, as well as staged music presentations, opera productions, dance, film, and visual art.
The Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra is the resident orchestra of the Mostly Mozart Festival. Over the years, the Orchestra has toured to such notable festivals and venues as Ravinia, Great Woods, Tanglewood, Bunkamura in Tokyo, and the Kennedy Center. Conductors who made their New York debuts leading the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra include Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Charles Dutoit, Leonard Slatkin, David Zinman, and Edo de Waart. Soloists including Joshua Bell, Itzhak Perlman, Pinchas Zukerman, Alicia de Larrocha, Richard Stoltzman, Emanuel Ax, and Garrick Ohlsson have had long associations with the Festival. Mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli, flutist James Galway, soprano Elly Ameling, and pianist Mitsuko Uchida all made their U.S. debuts at the Mostly Mozart Festival.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.
