Display ad for Concerts in the Village April 30, 2023 performance

Join us for Handel’s stunning oratorio-ode L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato – “The Cheerful, the Thoughtful, and the Moderate Man.” As originally, the libretto is in English. Performing will be the Broad Street Chorale, the Broad Street Orchestra and three outstanding soloists, in all over fifty musicians. CITV Artistic Director David Smith will conduct.

Burmese-American soprano Robin Steitz, so enthusiastically received in fall 2021, returns to CITV from recent commitments both in the U.S. and in Europe. In 2018 and 2019 she was honored as a Tanglewood Voice Fellow. Ms. Steitz’s many appearances embrace recitals, concerts and opera. A graduate of Reed College and the Eastman School of Music, in 2019 she was a winner of the Buffalo/Toronto District Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. Hers is a lyric coloratura voice of remarkable drama and expressive delivery.

 Tenor Maximillian Jansen has enjoyed a number of appearances with CITV, most recently this past November as Uriel in Haydn’s Creation. Other performances for CITV include the Mass in B minor of Bach (2019), the title role of Acis in Handel’s Acis and Galatea (2020), and Mozart’s demanding concert aria Misero! O sogno (2020). A graduate of the Bard Vocal Arts Program, this summer Jansen appears with Saratoga Opera in Steven Lutvak’s A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.

 A native of New York City, baritone Noah Kleinberg is making his CITV debut. Currently a student of Donna Gill in the Juilliard School Evening Division, past performances include Mozart scenes with Opera Lucca, a new one-act opera Maggie Now with the Juilliard Opera Lab, and Rossini’s L’occasione fa il ladro with the Opera Theater of Yale College. Noah holds a B.A. in music from Yale University. When not singing, Noah also studies acting at HB Studio in New York.
