Students to perform Mozart
Mozart will never die, right? It's said that after he was buried in a pauper's grave, a couple of guys were walking by and heard music coming out of the ground. "That's 'The Magic Flute,' but it's being played backwards," said one guy. Said the other guy, "Mozart must be decomposing."
