The San Diego-based organization Mainly Mozart will expand its offerings in 2006 in celebration of the 250th anniversary of the composer's birth.

In addition to its annual Mainly Mozart Festival, which runs May 19-June 24 next year, the organization will perform at concerts and events throughout the year and collaborate with other organizations on their own celebrations.

In January, during the week of Mozart's birthday, conductor David Atherton and Mainly Mozart's chamber ensemble will give two concerts in San Diego while clothed in 18th-century garb, and will tour to several locations in Southern California and Mexico.

Other events include a performance by the Jean Isaacs San Diego Dance Theater to jazz versions of Mozart's music, lectures on the composer's life and music at San Diego State University, an outdoor performance of CosÐ fan tutte by Tijuana Opera, and the San Diego Symphony's presentation of Mozart's arrangement of Handel's Messiah.
