For several years, Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra members have joined the Rochester Philharmonic Youth Orchestra to play side by side with them for a concert.

Last spring, the RPO and the city of Rochester hosted a concert that featured a 200-voice community chorus made up from voices from all over the area.

Because of the choral concert’s success, the city and the RPO are holding their first Side by Side: RPO & Community Orchestra Concert at 8 p.m. Wednesday at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs St.

The concert is free, although reservations are recommended and a $5 donation is requested. Call (585) 454-2100.
