Soldier reunites with family at BPO concert, WGRZ

It’s been a long-standing tradition for a Western New York family to go to the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra holiday concert. But over the last couple years there has been one special person missing … until this week.

On Saturday, Sergeant Katie Bauman surprised her family at the BPO concert. Her mother was called to the stage where she was told a special gift had arrived for her. That’s when Bauman came around the corner.

Bauman is a sergeant in the United States Army and has been stationed abroad for the past four years.
