The Binghamton University Chorus and Orchestra present a rare performance of Felix Mendelssohn's Symphony No.2


Conductor Timothy Perry speaks with WSKG’s Bill Snyder about a rare performance of Felix Mendelssohn’s Symphony No.2, “Song of Praise” being performed by the Binghamton University Chorus and Orchestra.  The chorus was prepared by Bruce Borton. It’s the first performance of this work in the area in over 30 years.  It was written to commemorate the 40oth anniversary of Gutenburg’s institution of the printing press.

Timothy Perry:  “The texts in this case are drawn primarily from the Psalms.”
