Prancing on a makeshift podium, an energetic woman in a black jumpsuit leads the Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute Orchestra through a rehearsal of Act IV of Mozart's "Le Nozze di Figaro." Conductor Susan Davenny Wyner encourages her young charges with a wink, a smile or by telling yet another tale of operatic lore. Hard to believe that a few years ago Wyner's life was in shards.

Still to come in Cahuenga Pass: four Mozart evenings, Aug. 20-29, when 14 more works by this year's most feted composer are scheduled at regular Tuesday-Thursday L.A. Philharmonic concerts, outdoors.
