Help GVOC continue to share great music and experiences with the Rochester community at its main fundraising event. Our special guest, Michael Lasser, host of the national radio program Fascinatin’ Rhythm, winner of a Peabody award, and our greatest expert on American popular music, will lead us through a historical journey of songs from the movies.
There is so much to enjoy at this event:
Experience the beauty of one of Rochester’s greatest landmarks, the Lyric Theater. Enjoy cocktails and fine hors
d’oeuvres while exploring the beauty of the Lyric Theater. Learn about the history of familiar music from Michael Lasser, a “walking encyclopedia” (Jeff Tyzik).
Songs in this program include: “As Time Goes By,” “Blue Skies,” Over the Rainbow,” and “Singin’ in the Rain.” We all have fond connections to such music, and as Rochesterians we have George Eastman to thank for making some of its movies possible. Come celebrate and support Rochester history and Rochester’s musicians.
