BPO On Demand: Jazz Performances
Tuesday, February 16, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10
Understanding the power of music during these unprecedented times, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra announces the extension of its BPOnDemand series through the first quarter of 2021. The popular video-streamed performance series, presented by M&T Bank, uses state-of-the-art audio and video recording technology to bring the magical acoustics of Kleinhans into the living room of patrons via their home computer or mobile device. The series has allowed the BPO to perform exciting repertoire not normally available to the full orchestra and helps to ensure that the 73 full-time musicians of the BPO remain employed.
Upcoming Jazz Programming:
A combination of early Blues, French march music, and classical song, ragtime became the foundation for jazz and popular music of the past century. Your BPO is the star of the show with step out features for our very own clarinet, trombone and trumpet soloists. Songs include The Entertainer, Maple Leaf Rag, King Porter Stomp, St. Louis Blues, and Rialto Ripples.
Trumpeter, arranger, and conductor, Jeff Tyzik, currently serves as Principal Pops Conductor of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. Known for his inventive programming, this concert recreates a sultry, passionate evening of Latin music from Cuba, Spain, and Argentina, from steamy tangos to seductive ballads.
