Nikki LaBonte: Living Room Recital Series

By June 7, 2020

On Saturday, June 6, Nikki LaBonte, horn, hosted a special episode of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra Living Room Concert Series. This intimate evening of classical favorites and contemporary tunes featured selections from Mozart and Bach to Buyanovsky and the Beatles —  with both some classic and  lesser known works for an enjoyable First Church music experience, right from the comfort of our living room couches.

“Thank you for hosting me for this fun event!” exclaims LaBonte about fabulous free concert, which included short introductions along with each musical work as well as a short Q&A session at the end from questions submitted through our comments section during the Facebook Live event.”

If you missed it —or want to see this unique concert experience again — watch this, the fifth most watched FU CFW video of last week, here.
