RPO announces concert series in Ithaca

Rochester Business Journal
July 9, 2012

The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra is partnering with Ithaca College to present a three-concert series during the 2012-2013 season, the orchestra announced Monday.

The concerts are to take place in Ford Hall on the Ithaca College campus and will be spread throughout the season, with the concerts taking place Oct. 5, Feb. 8 and March 24. All Ithaca College students will be able to attend the concerts for free.

The RPO partnership is meant to provide a platform for educational collaborations with the Ithaca College Symphony Orchestra, said Jeffrey Meyer, director of orchestras at Ithaca College.

“This newly developed partnership will add great depth to our already very strong orchestral program,” Meyer said. “Our students are already fortunate to have frequent interaction with a very fine professional chamber orchestra. This partnership with the RPO, one of the Northeast's top professional orchestras, will greatly expand our students' education and professional advancement potential by putting them in close contact with an excellent full symphony orchestra.”

For the RPO, the series will help accomplish the goal of extending the orchestra’s regional presence and deepening connections to the leading cultural and educational institutions throughout the area, said Charles Owens, RPO president and CEO.

“We are thrilled to provide Ithaca College students with opportunities to hear more great symphonic music, and to finding creative ways to enrich their educational experience,” Owens said.
