The Rochester Oratorio Society presents “Spirit of the Dance”

by ROS ~ September 6th, 2011. Filed under: Event.

March 9, 2012, 7:30 P.M., Hochstein Performance Hall, 50 Plymouth Avenue North, Rochester
Spirit of the Dance
with BIODANCE, Missy Pfohl Smith, Artistic Director
and the Antara Winds
We’re singing about dancing this irresistibly energetic evening. The ROS starts the tune with Bizet’s light and lilting “Valse avec Choeur.” The richness of woodwinds fills out our unique version of Brahms’s beloved “Liebeslieder” Waltzes, with original choreography by Missy Pfohl Smith. Then, BIODANCE takes the stage for the world-premiere performance of Scherzo, a new work by the internationally recognized choreographer and SUNY-Brockport artist Bill Evans, set to the music of Brahms. Six lusty, fun and sentimental Songs from the Bavarian Highlands by Edward Elgar (sung in English) will send you out with a skip in your step. With special guests, The Antara Winds, artist ensemble in residence at the Hochstein School of Music. Order tickets online at, call the ROS Office at (585) 473-2234 or e-mail your request to
