The BPC has continued to support arts education in the WNY community through our High School Choral Affiliates program. During most seasons, the BPC invites WNY high school music teachers to recommend two of their best vocal students to join our singers for a performance at Kleinhans Music Hall with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. Student nominations are reviewed, and once accepted the students are paired with a current member to serve as their mentor throughout the rehearsal as and performance. In addition to the experience of singing on the stage with a professional orchestra, students are also eligible to receive community service hours for their participation in the High School Affiliates Program.
Past High School Affiliate Program performances have included:
William Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast conducted by JoAnn Falletta, Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana conducted by JoAnn Falletta, and most recently, the BPO’s Memorial Day concert, An American Salute, conducted by John Morris Russell.
