Masterclasses

Masterclasses

Free and open to the public

The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra hosts incredible guest artists each year on our M&T Bank Classics and BPO Pops Series.  We make many of these masters available to the community in our BPO Masterclass series. These artists will work one-on-one with talented local students in front of a live audience. 

Musically advanced high school and college students are invited to apply as a performer for any class.  All applications require a private instructor’s nomination and an audio recording.

All events are free and open to the public with a required reservation.

PLEASE NOTE: Most masterclasses take place at the Clement House at 786 Delaware Avenue, in the beautiful Music Room. The Piano Masterclass will take place in the Mary Seaton Room at Kleinhans Music Hall.
