Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was initiated an Entered Apprentice on December 14, 1784 in Charity Lodge (Loge zur Wohltätigkeit) in Vienna, Austria. He was passed to the degree of Fellow Craft on January 7, 1785 and raised a Master Mason shortly thereafter. His father became a Mason in 1785 while visiting him in Vienna.

Mozart was an active Freemason, composing music for Lodge work as early as March of 1785 and culminating with a full opera based on Masonic symbolism, The Magic Flute, which he composed in 1791 – the year he died.
