Essex Winter Series artistic director Mihae Lee welcomes the return of bass-baritone David Pittsinger to the series with pianist Simon Holt on Sunday, March 4, at 3 p.m. at John Winthrop Middle School, 1 John Winthrop Middle School Drive, Deep River.

Pittsinger is internationally renowned for his magnificent voice and dramatic performances. His first Essex Winter Series concert in six years will be a unique program that includes Bach, Handel, Mendelssohn and Brahms, as well as selections from the American Songbook to celebrate the American spirit.

With a busy performance season that has taken him all over the world, Mr. Pittsinger conveyed a message while abroad at the Dutch National Opera: “I look forward to seeing you all soon. Returning to my community in anticipation of my performance for EWS has really buoyed my spirits through all my recent travels.”

Essex Winter Series’ 2018 season concludes on April 8 with The Quodlibet Ensemble, a New York-based string chamber orchestra of young, dynamic artists who regularly present a range of great music, from the Baroque to the modern day. The concert takes place on April 8 at Valley Regional High School and will include Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, as well as music by Mendelssohn, Mozart, and Nathan Schram.
