David Wysocki, Artistic Director

Playing bass in the orchestra for a production of Cosi fan tutte with Boston University Opera Theatre was the beginning of David Wysocki’s lifelong love affair with the music of Mozart. Working with noted opera conductor, educator and impressario Boris Goldovsky also left a huge impression on the budding Mozart buff. “Goldovsky worshipped Mozart” Wysocki recalls, “ he would remind us often that Mozart is our musical God.”

Throughout his career as a double bassist the opportunities to perform Mozart, the symphonies, concerti, sacred music and chamber music, were always viewed as a special treat. As a connoisseur, Mr. Wysocki has listened to hundreds of recordings, attended countless concerts and opera productions and read dozens of biographies and other historical accounts.

“The Upper Valley Mozart Project is a wonderful opportunity for a group of fantastic musicians to dig deeper into Mozart’s catalog and take a fresh look at old favorites.” Wysocki enthuses. “Most importantly” he adds, “we get to share this sublime music with our audience, Mozart fanatics and first time listeners alike.”
