Audience Buzz

A Favorite Since 1976!

I am struggling with words that would explain the surprise we felt when the incredibly beautiful music began filling our souls. Music resounding into the depth of our being and releasing such joy. How does one thank a group of people for bringing back a balance of what is beautiful in this often maligned society?

The Genesee Valley Orchestra and Chorus outdid themselves at a most outstanding holiday concert on Saturday evening, December 7th, at the Perinton Presbyterian Church. A variety of musical selections from Bach ‘s “Wachet Auf” cantata, Christmas spirituals, John Rutter’s delightful Brother Heinrich’s Christmas, and many more highlighted the musicianship, talent and hard work of this stunning community group! Congratulations GVOC for giving us yet another wonderful performance! (December 2013 – A Christmas Garland)

A man was telling his friends about the phenomenal concert that he had attended. He raved about the choir, the orchestra, the soloists, the violin solo, and the conductor to his 3 friends who all agreed that they would have to look for our next concert!
