The Upper Valley Mozart Project

motzar-youth-imageThe Upper Valley Mozart Project is a versatile ensemble of singers and players dedicated to performing the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Under the artistic direction of double bassist and Mozart enthusiast David Wysocki the group presents diverse programs of Mozart’s vocal and instrumental music in venues throughout the region.

The genius of Mozart has been a source of fascination and inspiration for musicians and music lovers for over 200 years. From childhood until his early death at 35 he moved effortlessly from genre to genre; vocal to instrumental, sacred to secular and from intimate solo compositions to large scale works for the stage. Scholars suggest that every musical form he explored sonata, concerto, string quartet, serenade, symphony and opera, was profoundly changed by his efforts. “In my view” states Wysocki “there is music before Mozart and music after Mozart.”

The Upper Valley Mozart Project is committed to offering audiences an opportunity to discover lesser-known gems alongside beloved, familiar compositions. With a rotating roster of singers and instrumentalists performing solo, in chamber ensembles and in large mixed groups The Upper Valley Mozart Project provides a concert experience that touches on every facet of Mozart’s vast body of work.
