Sheryl Hadeka – Women in the Orchestra
As the first female brass player in the Buffalo Philharmonic, second horn player Sheryl Hadeka knows how important it is to challenge gender stereotypes in classical music. Join Sheryl as she discusses her blind entrance audition for the BPO and how she’s kept up with her rather tall male colleagues. She will delve into the history of women in horn sections, her personal role in the orchestra, and the importance of the BPO’s prominent female music director.
BPOvations at the Libraries:
The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, in cooperation with the Buffalo & Erie County Public Libraries, presents a chance to get to know your BPO on a personal level. These free talks given by BPO musicians offer an intimate look inside the BPO and shine light on the one-of-a-kind workplace that is an American symphony orchestra.
