2012-04-23 16:17:08   About 2-3 years ago, I had the misfortune of hearing this group at the Hochstein. They were supporting the rochester Oratorio Society on a concert, so I assumed that they were at least slightly professional. Unfortunately, they STUNK! I mean, the orchestra I was in back in 8th grade could hold a steadier note! When they played Bach, it sounded like somebody torturing a stray cat! Holy crap, were they awful!!And, it was quite obvious that it was mostly the string section that couldn't find a good note (although the brass section was similarly awful). My sister was a member of this group something like 30 years ago, and back then they weren't THIS bad! And to think we had to PAY to listen to such awful music. I've heard 1st year Suzuki classes that were better than the string section of this orchestra. Even the Portsmouth Synfonia was better, even at their worst! —Alex-C

I have had the pleasure of hearing the PSO perform several times, and believe me they are very professional and they sound amazing. I would strongly encourage the previous reviewer to go to one of the PSO's formal concerts for a more accurate judgement. —Joslin

Perhaps they only had 'second string' musicians for that concert, but I can safely say that I have NEVER heard Bach's "Aire on a G-string" played as poorly as it was that night. It was beyond bad, it was appalling! I think that fingernails on a chalkboard make better sounds than the PSO made that night. —alex-c
