Audience Buzz

A Favorite Since 1976!

I had a friend who said it was the best $12 he ever spent and another who said it was a holy moment in her life.

Wonderful GVOC concert tonight! I thought there was much more enthusiasm than ever before. Dynamics and enunciation were great. I especially liked having much less accompaniment which allowed voices to be heard. Program choices were good, too. And, what a nice big audience! Merry Christmas! (December 2012 – With Joyous Note)

The Genesee Valley Orchestra and Chorus did it once again Friday evening May 19th with an exquisite performance of the ‘Misa a Buenes Aires’ by Martin Palmer. It is challenging to perform a combination of the sacred text of the mass with the rhythms of the ‘tango’ and GVOC did just that, with style and grace. The added selections were beautiful as were the featured soloists Yvonne Trobe, soprano and Iskra Alex Alexandria, accordion. Especially memorable was the closing of the Agnes Dei at the very end of the concert! One could hear a pin drop. Congratulations to one and all and thank you.
