HANDEL: Water Music Suite
VAUGHAN WILLIAMS: Symphony No. 1 "A Sea Symphony"

Handel's popular suite was written for a floating concert on the River Thames in 1717. Its charming Baroque texture is the perfect counterpoint to Vaughan William' epic Sea Symphony, a stirring hymn to humanity.

Pre-concert chat at 7 p.m.    Read the program notes.

Rhythm & Rhyme

Thursday, October 11

In the RPO’s continuing effort to expand the concert experience, the Orchestra is teaming up with BOA Editions, the Rochester-based, Pulitzer Prize-winning publishing house. Sean Thomas Dougherty – a BOA poet inspired by the work of Walt Whitman – will share the Thursday evening pre-concert chat with Christopher Seaman, after having held a master class earlier that day for local college poetry students and their professors.  

Immediately after Thursday’s concert, Mr. Dougherty will be presenting a free, public reading of his works at Java’s (16 Gibbs Street), with an open mike to follow.
