The University of Rochester Orchestras present a digital concert, gala, and fundraiser reflecting on our fall 2020 semester. Join us as we present the following program, including bonus commentary and reflections.

This evening we are raising funds to install a Dante Network in our concert hall. This will allow us, and all other performing arts organizations, to make recordings and continue our partnership with the University of Rochester’s Audio and Music Engineering Program. The cost of this project is approximately $20,000, and we would like to raise $5,000-$10,000 through our gala this evening.
