Orchestra of the Bronx and Opera Chorus perform at Bronx Community College Playhouse
Community members and music lovers filled the Bronx Community College Playhouse in University Heights Sunday to watch the Orchestra of the Bronx and Opera Chorus perform for the holidays.
On the program was Handels Messiah, a three-part composition joined by singers from the Bronx Opera Chorus and readings from Bronx community members, such as District Attorney Darcel Clark and Assembly Member Jeffrey Dinowitz.
The performance was led by conductor Michael Spierman, who founded the Orchestra of the Bronx 50 years ago with the hope of bringing classical to people from all walks of life.
The orchestra consists of some of the finest musicians in the city, many of whom have been with the ensemble for years.
The Orchestra of the Bronx rehearses out of Lehman College and is always putting on concerts free of charge for the community to enjoy.
