Classical Music Scene Promises a Range of Memorable Events, Buffalo News

The classical music scene is readying for a colorful fall.

From now until December, Buffalo will be seeing a range of what promise to be memorable events. They start out summery – there’s even one more outdoor free concert – and then ease into deeper territory. They are so varied that people who have been music fans forever are sure to find something new to intrigue them. And some of the concerts will be great not only for classical music fans but for their friends who are still on the fence.

Here are some highlights to anticipate.

Just when you thought all the outdoor concerts were over, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra is extending the summer season by performing a free concert at 1 p.m. Sept. 22 at Riverfest Park in the First Ward. Music includes Irish tunes as well as “The Earl of Oxford’s March.” Bravo to the BPO for extending the summer season.

Bernadette Peters is one of the great voices of Broadway and, even more important, gives a great show. She opens the BPO Pops season at 8 p.m. Sept. 28 in Kleinhans. Read More.
