Realizing how much music has been healing, uplifting and revitalizing for herself, classically trained singer and musician, Heather Schmid returned to the recording studio to produce a Mozart album in hopes of providing solace for listeners.

"Mozart takes time and precision, so I soaked up the healing, relaxing music qualities to de-stress during these turbulent times. Like so many other musicians, every single show, gig, live performance, and touring opportunity was cancelled in March- dead stop, so practicing Mozart every day started as a healing balm for me. I want to share that feeling of relaxation and calm with listeners. These are difficult times and listening to Mozart is a great tool to calm the spirit and uplift the soul.”
