Greenwich Village Orchestra - "Hope!"

POST #    754

Last night, I went to see the Greewich Village Orchestra perform "Hope!" at the Church of St. Mary in Times Square. The GVO performed Beethoven's Symphony Number 9 in an absolutely beautiful setting. The performance of the orchestra was spectacular as well, with a choral accompaniment in the 4th movement.

This was my second trip to the watch the GVO. I previously went to see their family concert, which was also excellent. The GVO is a community based orchestra that was established in 1986, with members that all have day jobs and play for the love of it.

Hi Tien. I'm very glad you made it to the concert - your site was one of the *first* I visited this morning! :) It was great fun performing the concert to such a big audience!! If you're bored on Tuesday night, or if any of your friends missed it, we're doing it AGAIN tomorrow night at St. Paul's Church up at Columbia University! See the website http://gvo.org for more details.

I hope we're making a fan out of you! :)
