A Note From BCO

Dear family and friends of BCO,

While we still cannot wait to gather together to rehearse and perform, we continue to find ways to make and share music with our members, as well as you, our patrons, community and faithful supporters. We hope that we will be performing for you soon, but in the meantime, please enjoy this first ever virtual recording by some of the members of the Buffalo Community Orchestra. Please enjoy this performance of Edward Elgar's Nimrod.

Music can heal wounds that medicine cannot touch.-Debasish Mridha
