The Brockport Symphony Orchestra and Amadeus Chorale will join forces to present “Global Connections” on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at 7pm in the Twelve Corners Presbyterian Church Sanctuary, 1200 S. Winton Road in Rochester. Concert tickets are $10 each and can be purchased online at brockportsymphony.org and at the door. Ample free parking is available, and there will be a complimentary dessert reception following the performance.
Under the direction of Darla Bair and Jonathan Allentoff, this gala concert will highlight a wide variety of masterpieces, dances, and folk songs from across the globe. Rachel Roessel, the orchestra’s principal clarinet and an active musician in the Greater Rochester area, will be featured as soloist in Allentoff’s new setting of Antonin Dvorak’s hymn, “Goin’ Home.” The program, which includes works by Elizabeth Alexander, Edward Elgar, Reinhold Gliere, Jim Papolulis, Giacomo Puccini, and Donna Gartman Schultz, also showcases the talents of internationally-acclaimed concertmaster Jaesun Han and collaborative pianist Sally Martin.
This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Genesee Valley Council on the Arts, a member-supported organization.

Genesee Valley Orchestra & Chorus in collaboration with Michael Lasser
The 100th anniversary of the end of WW1. 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 time of WW1. The songs of the First World War reveal the attitudes and beliefs of their time, especially since what we believed changed so quickly and dramatically. At first we were determined to stay out of Europe’s war. By the time it ended, we had become a different country.
