The music plays on!
We have certainly missed playing for you! As of now, there are no State guidelines or news on the timeline for reopening music venues like Kleinhans Music Hall. Though we have developed a very specific and detailed reopening plan, it is apparent that it may be some time before audiences are allowed inside Kleinhans. Therefore, we want our valued patrons to know our plan of action, and your options to continue to subscribe to your BPO.
Each week, we will present a video-streamed concert as part of a new series called BPOnDemand until we are allowed to hold concerts for live audiences once again. These broadcasts will start in September and run through December, as a start. Subscribers to the 2020-21 season will receive access to all of these virtual performances for FREE so that you can experience your BPO once again in lieu of attendance at concerts, our gift to you for your unwavering support. In addition to free access to BPOnDemand, we will soon announce other virtual add-ons for subscribers only.
Maestro Falletta and Principal Pops Conductor John Morris Russell have revised and created exciting programs for the M&T Classics Series and the BPO Pops Series with a smaller orchestra. Click here to explore our re-envisioned fall and holiday programs. The Rock Series will have to be postponed until further notice and a streamed BPOKids Series is in development.
Once concerts with live audiences are allowed, we will re-issue the schedule and be in contact with our subscribers about ticketing options, based on the rules for seating capacity under New York State social distancing guidelines.
As you can imagine, the pandemic has created a very difficult financial situation for all of us. We hope that you will be understanding with regard to your subscription and will stand beside us as we weather this storm. We are very much looking forward to playing for you again soon. We know we will get through this with your help.
We have developed a 2020-21 Season FAQ page to help answer many of your questions. Please check back for regular updates. For now, please know how much we, and our wonderful musicians, appreciate your support of the BPO.
Subscriptions to the 2020-21 season are still available!
As a subscriber, you will have the benefit of flexible options that will allow you to create the schedule perfect for you. Your support at this time will enhance our ability to ensure that the orchestra remains a vibrant, financially-stable organization, and also help our musicians continue to serve our community through ongoing education initiatives.
