Brahms Requiem Preview Performance!

Our beloved music director, José Alejandro (Alex) Guzmán is dedicating this performance to his dear, departed friend Louis Flaim. We are dedicating it to him. Alex has conducted orchestras throughout NYC for more than forty years. He is one of a very rare breed of conductors whose skill far exceeds his ego, which has made him a favorite of all of us who work with him. Please join us for this very special event.
