The Brighton Symphony Orchestra, in collaboration with the Genesee Chorale, will present their holiday concert titled, “Glory and Majesty” at 3 p.m. on Dec. 16 at The Clover Center for the Arts, 1101 Clover St., Rochester.
Directed by Ric Jones, this family concert features the world premiere of Daniel Baldwin’s “Letchworth Park Suite,” a new choral/orchestral work commissioned by both ensembles. Lyrics are taken from poems written by early visitors to Glen Iris Inn, which were assembled into a book by William Pryor Letchworth.
The program also includes “A Most Wonderful Christmas” by Robert Sheldon; Jonathan Allentoff’s “Chanukah Festival Medley”; “Do You Hear What I Hear” arranged by Emily Crocker, John Moss and John Levitt; Dan Forrest’s setting of “The Huron Carol”; Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride” arranged for chorus and orchestra by Ric Jones; and the “Hallelujah Chorus” by G. F. Handel.
Admission is free, and donations will be accepted at the door. There will be a complimentary dessert reception following the performance.
The Brighton Symphony Orchestra is sponsored by the town of Brighton Recreation, Parks & Community Services and 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 Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Genesee Valley Council on the Arts.
