GRCC Virtual Prism Concert Wednesday, February 17th at 3:00pm
Every other February, the Greater Rochester Choral Consortium (GRCC), a group of 28 member ensembles, presents a PRISM-style concert in Kodak Hall. In a PRISM-style concert, a number of ensembles perform in uninterrupted succession from different locations around the concert hall. Since the 2021 Prism concert will not happen, WXXI presents an encore of a virtual concert with recorded selections from many of the member ensembles. The program is hosted by Dan McInerney, treasurer of the GRCC Board, and journalist Norma Holland, who was to be this year’s Master of Ceremonies.
