COMMITTED TO LIVE PERFORMANCE!
The Oneonta Concert Association was delighted to be back to live performances for live audiences in our 2022-2023 season, welcoming Pegasus: The Orchestra, whose initially postponed concert we were fortunately able to reschedule as Season 94’s hit opener, followed by outstanding performances by Sten & Maria Z Ensemble with versatile percussionist Brian Melick and Spanish & flamenco dancer La Nina; by Arjun Verma on traditional improvisatory sitar with Naren Budhakar on tabla; by Julie Licata & Friends, featuring an assortment of percussion instruments, solo and “in conversation” with flute and piano; and concluding with striking beauty by Catalyst Quartet as season finale.
Several programs of educational outreach were an additional treat for various audiences and age groups; and individual Young Artists continue to grace the start of each concert with a 10-minute opening performance.
Season 95 began in September 2023, and continues through April 2024: See the 5-concert lineup on the slider, above.
