The Buffalo Choral Arts Society (BCAS) is a 110-member chorus that performs four concerts in and around the Western New York area per concert season. The highlight concert is held each Christmas, oftentimes sold out, at Our Lady of Victory Basilica. The program for this popular and highly anticipated concert performance of John Ruttner’s GLORIA will feature familiar Christmas music, as well as new pieces for chorus and brass. The Buffalo Choral Arts Brass, an ensemble of 12 instrumentalists, will accompany the chorus. Works by Handel, Simeone, Holst and others will round out the evening. BCAS Conductor Marcia Giambrone is celebrating her 25th anniversary with this esteemed group during the 2011 – 2012 concert season.
