“ The concert at Eagle Vale was one for the record books. My husband and I loved it! The music was wonderfully chosen and beautifully performed. It was an evening to remember in every good way. We also attended the Christmas concert and had the same reaction: beautiful music, beautifully done; nothing from “Messiah” for a change, but all very appropriate to the season. No wonder there was a huge audience – people left there happy that they had been a part of it. Keep up the terrific work, please.

“ 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) ”T.D.
“ 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. ”Terry Davis, Ithaca, NY
