Yes, we all know that Mozart’s 250th birthday is rapidly approaching. Yes, it means nearly every orchestra will play Mozart this year. And yes, that is okay because Mozart deserves to be played, contrary to what Norman Lebrecht might think.

But is it necessary to have a bra that, when unfastened, plays Eine Kleine Nachtmusik? Really. I checked this out. Articles are plentiful that include this bra news. (Not that all the articles deal primarily with this news, but they do mention the creation.)

If only I’d known! I could have purchased one for this week’s concerts. Of course one has to hope the bra doesn’t malfunction in the middle of a concert.

But here’s an idea; have an entire orchestra wear the bras and “set them off” (in some decent, non-offensive way of course) in a concert. I guess that might be a bit more than a “little” night music though, eh?
