Medina, NY, October 30, 2017- The Brighton Symphony Orchestra's 'Rococo Project' will give a concert on Saturday November 4, at 3:00 p.m., at the Lee-Whedon Memorial Library, 620 West Avenue, Medina, N. Y. 14103. The free concert is entitled "Music from the Age of the Enlightenment." The program will feature chamber works and songs by Haydn, Deleplanque, Rousseau, and Steibelt. "Of particular interest is that I will be playing the ca. 1775 Deleplanque Sonata for Harp and Violin on the harp for which the piece was written," said harpist Paul Knoke. "The harp was built in Paris by Cousineau, who also built harps for Marie-Antionette."

The Brighton Symphony Orchestra's Rococo Project is a chamber ensemble of musicians from the orchestra, offering historically informed performances of late 18th century music on period instruments. The concert will feature Aaron Bailey and Cynthia Howk, violins; Jonathan Allentoff, viola; Elizabeth Kinney, violoncello; Mary Wojciechowski, soprano; Jack Spula, harpsichord; and Paul Knoke, harp.

The Rococo Project Ensemble (L to R) - Jack Spula, Cynthia Howk, Jonathan Allentoff, Elizabeth Kinney, Paul Knoke, Aaron Bailey, and Mary Wojciechowski.


The Brighton Symphony Orchestra is sponsored by Brighton Parks & Community Services and is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regnant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by Livingston Arts, a member supported organization.
