In the final quarter of the year, most of the Pages of music events were concerts, which were appreciated. Attendees of the Pages of Music workshops learned more about Mozart's life and music, including his life as a child musical prodigy. Some events were held at schools to reach a maximum number of children. One teacher wrote, "This program really introduced the students to the oboe and bass. They were eager to learn and were captivated by the music and stories. Thank you for exposing our students to the arts!" A second teacher wrote, "I think [the program] opened up a new appreciation with the kids as far as what the opera is all about." Another teacher wrote, "They made the show exciting for kids and they used kid-friendly language. One of the better shows I have seen. The kids were smiling, learning, and having a great time."
