Retired music teacher Patricia Glunt is still conducting business. She recently formed the Jackson Heights Community Orchestra, which will offer its first ever concert tonight, December 12, at the Community United Methodist Church. The all-volunteer, 18-piece ensemble features everything from flute to oboe to cello to keyboards. Glunt, who studied violin performance and composition at the University of the Pacific’s Conservatory of Music, will conduct, and the night’s program will include Handel’s “Overture to the Messiah,” Holst’s “St. Paul’s Suite,” Respighi’s “Ancient Airs and Dances Suite#1” and a couple of holiday songs with local lyric soprano Jayne Skoog.

Remember when we wrote about the fledgling Jackson Heights Community Orchestra? Well, they had their auditions in September, and a 12-person orchestra resulted (with hope for more musicians to join the fold in the new year). They’ve had a few rehearsals, and now they have a concert scheduled for Wednesday, December 12 at the Jackson Heights Community Church at 7pm, reports DNAinfo.
