The Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes (OSFL) presents the NOT ALL Frozen Holiday Concert on Saturday, December 3 at the Clemens Center in Elmira, NY. With three female vocalists and two premiere compositions, this year’s Holiday Concert brings a wide variety of repertoire and styles, offering something for everyone. This family friendly concert begins at 2:00 PM. For guests arriving early, the OSFL’s Young People’s Orchestra will perform in the upper lobby of the Clemens Center starting at 1:25 p.m.
Stage and screen actor/singer, Laura Darrell (Anna from Frozen Live), will entertain the Holiday audience with favorites from Frozen, Mame, The Sound of Music, and an orchestrated narration of The Night Before Christmas. Classical pieces include the overture and “Evening Prayer Duet” from Hansel and Gretel sung by mezzo-soprano Ivy Walz and soprano Ashley Alden. Selections from Handel’s Messiah will include these two soloists and the Chorus of the Southern Finger Lakes under the direction of William Cowdery.
The OSFL commissioned Israeli-American composer, Avner Finberg, to write a medley of iconic Klezmer dances to celebrate Hanukkah. This composition, entitled Dances in Freygish, will receive its world premiere at the December 3rd concert. Also on this concert, Magnificat by Slovak composer, Vladimír Godár, will receive its U.S. premiere.
Concert tickets are $20 to $50 for adults, $10 for college students with ID, FREE for youth under age 18 when accompanied by a ticketed adult. Contact the Clemens Center box office at 607-734-8191 or ClemensCenter.org.
