Contrary to one part of the article, I believe this concert is tonight, Monday, January 30. The church’s website has today’s date, as does the body of the article (which I’ve put in bold font just because I can).

Roger is a great player, and mighty nice guy too!

Mozart Birthday Concert
Mozart Birthday Concert at Edgehill United Methodist Church
When: Sun., Jan. 29, 7 p.m.
Pianist and Nashville Symphony English horn player Roger Wiesmeyer plays a lot of concerts, so we take notice when he calls the Mozart Birthday Benefit Concert at Edgehill United Methodist his favorite show of the year. The annual celebration, now in its 10th year, always draws a diverse crowd of activists and music lovers — founder and organizer Wiesmeyer calls it “an opportunity to marry the things that matter most to me: beautiful music and social justice.” Conductor Joseph Lee will lead a specially assembled orchestra Monday night in Mozart’s “Little” G-minor Symphony No. 25 and the “Gran Partita” Serenade for winds. Always exuberant Vanderbilt composer Michael Rose offers halftime commentary drawn from his recent book Audible Signs, and be sure to stay after the performance for cake and conversation. This year’s concert benefits Nashville Peacemakers, a youth outreach organization founded by Clemmie Greenlee, the Scene’s 2007 Nashvillian of the Year.
