BCCO Live at Old Stone House -- FREE!

Concert rescheduled to Monday, July 5!
7:00 PM
Old Stone House, 336 3rd Street

BKCM final concert for the season, formerly scheduled for June 30, is now going to take place on July 5 at 7pm. The Brooklyn Conservatory Community Orchestra (BCCO), led by Music Director Dorothy Savitch, perform at the Old Stone House for only the second time since the start of the pandemic. Featuring glorious music by Haydn, Dvorak and the Bruch violin concerto, with concertmaster Luis Casal, the evening will culminate with rousing highlights from "The Pirates of the Caribbean."

The BCCO is a passionate group of dedicated amateur and professionals who perform the great masterpieces of the orchestral repertoire. The community is invited to bring their lawn chairs, picnic baskets, and blankets to celebrate the summer with BCCO.

Though the BCCO has not been able to rehearse and perform together in person since last March, like so many musicians we have not stopped making music! We've kept very busy meeting in virtual sectionals on zoom and we've created videos of some of our favorite music! (A special shout-out to our wonderful video editor Brian Krock!)
