Geneva Concerts presents Symphoria – the Orchestra of Central New York – on Sunday, February 20th, 3 pm, at the Smith Opera House, 82 Seneca Street, Geneva. The concert will begin with Ballade by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, the outstanding African-American composer. This is followed by pianist Jon Nakamatsu – no stranger to us here in the Finger Lakes – playing Ravel’s jazzy Concerto in G. After intermission Symphoria will mesmerize us with Rachmaninoff’s dark and mysteriously melodic Symphony No. 3.
We are very pleased to be offering live concerts again, and we are also aware of the safety concerns that are involved. Attendance will require masks and proof of vaccination, and social distancing will be observed in the spacious Smith Opera House; please check the Smith website at https://thesmith.org for changes to this policy There will be no pre-concert talk.
