Last night I went to the BPO to hear their tribute to the Oscars. The music was amazing but I loved to see how much the conductor and musicians loved what they do.

The second piece, Winter by Eric Whitacre included a special sitar performance by Naryan Padmanabha. Amazing! Another highlight was the finale to act 1...More

Kleinhans Music Hall in Buffalo, just across the Peace Bridge, is dated but has what JoAnn Falletta, their conductor, calls "Scandinavian simplicity," and the acoustics remain terrific, a great venue to appreciate classical music. The Music Hall (3 Symphony Circle) is easy to get to....More
