The Brockport Symphony Orchestra will present “Matinee at the Movies” on Sunday, November 5, 2023, 4 p.m., at the First Presbyterian Church of Brockport, 35 State Street in the Village of Brockport. Directed by Jonathan Allentoff, this concert celebrating 100 years of Hollywood studios will feature vocal artists Shaya Greathouse and Michael DeLuca, composer-in-residence Emmanuel Sikora, and film professor Dr. Sidney Rosenzweig.


Greathouse, a graduate of the Eastman School of Music and Biola University, is described as having “a most attractive and well produced lyric mezzo voice” (Michael Spierman, Artistic Director of the Bronx Opera). She has appeared as Hansel (Hansel and Gretel) and Tisbe (La Cenerentola), and she played Carmen in a special PBS production in Buffalo. She is a recitalist and sacred service musician. DeLuca studied vocal performance with Heinz Rehfuss while attending The University at Buffalo and has performed on stage across Western New York. He records and produces a variety of albums for the major streaming platforms and recently collaborated with Allentoff on the 2023 album, “Let’s Go to the Movies.”


Sikora, a graduate of Binghamton University and the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College, is a Peruvian-American composer and pianist with recent performances by the Ukrainian Festival Orchestra, Lviv Philharmonic, and the Syracuse University Symphony Orchestra. The Washington Post has described his music as “an appealing melding of the romantic and the contemporary, unselfconscious and unpretentious.” Rosenzweig is a lecturer of film at SUNY Brockport and author of the book, Casablanca and Other Major Films of Michael Curtiz.


The orchestra will perform the world premiere of “100 Years of Romance” by Sikora and “Dreams of Hollywood Hills” by Allentoff. The program also includes a variety of Hollywood favorites for the entire family.


Admission is free, and donations will be gratefully accepted.


This project is made possible with support from the Village of Brockport and funds from the Statewide Community Regrants Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by Genesee Valley Council on the Arts.
