BCO welcomes spring with a symphonic tour of Scandinavia. Scandinavia is located in Northern Europe and consists of five countries: Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Iceland. Each of the individual Scandinavian countries is unique in their heritage, folklore, language and music. Picture beautiful fjords and rugged mountains as BCO travels through the music of composers from Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland.
Celebrate spring as BCO turns the spotlight to their very own. Join us for a unique program that highlights the many talented musicians of the Buffalo Community Orchestra, including music from Copland, Mozart, Bizet, Beethoven and more! BCO is especially excited to welcome BCO soloists Mike Jeannot and Emily Scicchitano to the stage.
BCO kicks off its 28th season with a night at the movies! Join us for an evening of music from past and present cinema favorites. The concert will open with Raiders March from Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. This piece was written by John Williams, arguably the king of cinema music scores. From there we will experience music from movie classics such as Lord of the Rings, Dances with Wolves, and a few Disney favorites!
Music has an amazing way of evoking emotion to all human beings. Music is powerful and elicits memories, feelings of happiness, angst, thrill, sadness and of course LOVE! Join us for an afternoon of music based on romance, romantic music and composers from the romantic period. From the music of ill-fated lovers in West Side Story to the free-flowing music of Hanson’s Romantic symphony, this music will definitely hit a chord and warm your heart!
