The newly created Orchestra of St. Veronica, the third concert toke place on February 10th 2018.
Michael Feldman is conducting an eclectic mix of professional musicians, some of which were founding members of the renowned Orchestra of St. Luke's back in the 1970's. These veterans of the classical repertoire will be joined by younger musicians, whose vigor and brash boldness will offer a striking counterpoint to the former's refined sensibilities. The February 10th concert will fearture a program of compositions by Bach and Mozart.
After the Church of St. Veronica closed its doors in July of 2017, George Capsis publisher of WestView News thought it a shame that a 127 year old tradition of serving the community would be lost. Troubled too by the underserved population of senior citizens in the neighborhood, Capsis was inspired to create a classical concert series that "will always be free to seniors"
The At St. Veronica's concert series is a grassroots project that depends on public support. The Catholic Archdiocese of New York has granted permission for a trial run of 6 months.
