An American Salute

Celebrate American history through 200+ years of music, saluting our troops throughout the ages. Rachel Potter, Nashville star and “X Factor” finalist, joins JMR, the BPO, and the Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus for this red, white and blue celebration. On Friday, come at 9 AM for complimentary coffee and doughnuts.

On Saturday, park at Salvatore’s Italian Gardens and ride the shuttle to Kleinhans for $13 per person. The shuttle departs from the blue water tower in the rear parking lot at 7 PM. Click here to reserve online.

We present this concert each year to honor those who have served our nation, and those who have fallen in service. We hope you’ll join us in recognizing the sacrifices of our military by making a modest gift to the BPO’s Annual Fund in honor of a beloved active or former military member: https://bpo.secure.force.com/donate/?dfId=a0n2I00000z2dcKQAQ
