For Maestro Lantz’s final concert with Rochester Symphony, he presents us with his own holiday arrangements created over the years especially for Rochester Symphony. A lover of holiday music, he always ensured that the annual Holiday Extravaganza was something spectacular. Unable to find show-stopping arrangements that also included familiar melodies for audience participation, he created such arrangements himself. With the orchestra and chorale, we’ll present holiday classics, with all of Jere’s arrangements, for a festive farewell concert truly unique to Rochester Symphony.
