HAGERSTOWN -- It wasn't your typical birthday party. Sure, there was fun, food and music - but the guest of honor was nowhere to be found. He's been dead for more than 200 years. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart , child prodigy and composer of some of the world's most beloved symphonies and choral works, would have been 252 years old this month. To mark the occasion, a large crowd gathered Monday night at Hempen Hill BBQ Bar & Grill to salute the music genius and raise money for The Maryland Symphony Orchestra . The event began about 13 years ago when Hagerstown resident Phil Kelly and several of his friends decided to get together to socialize and listen to Mozart's music.

When asked, most 7-year-old boys would probably identify a long list of items they would like to receive as birthday presents. That list might include video games, Matchbox cars, LEGOs or professional sports apparel.   Connor Rohm of Greencastle, Pa., put together a very different list for his birthday. Instead of gifts, he asked his friends to make donations to one of his favorite places, the Boys & Girls Club of Washington County. “It was his idea, so instead of making a wish list of birthday presents, we asked his friends and their families to make donations to the Boys & Girls Club,” said Julie Rohm, Connor's mother and a volunteer at the club.
