Welcome to GVOC
Genesee Valley Orchestra and Chorus
Founded in 1976, The Genesee Valley Orchestra and Chorus (GVOC) presents a dynamic repertoire to audiences of all ages, races, religions, cultures, and geographic regions within the Genesee Valley.
A Favorite Since 1976!
“ 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
“ 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.
“ 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? ”Elizabeth S, Pittsford
