The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra doesn’t know when its musicians will get to take the stage again at Kleinhans. So until then, the orchestra is partnering with Classical WNED to air archived performances on Tuesday nights until they resume playing.
Conductor JoAnn Falletta says the orchestra musicians have been playing over the internet in lesson settings, but can’t wait to play with a larger group again.
"They came to us and said that they would like to be able to give, as a gift to the community, to their audiences and to all people that can listen, their concerts of the past, the archival concerts that we have, and to play them so that people can listen to music that was taped live, music that comes right from musicians that they know and love," Falletta said.
Concerts moving forward will broadcast on 94.5 FM Tuesdays at 7 p.m. Tonight’s performance is Beethoven’s Third symphony.
