The Buffalo Philharmonic Offers Early Access to Six of Its Concerts

On Thursday, July 17, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra will offer the public a chance to lock in their favorite seats to six of the season's highlights.

Tickets will be available early to:

  • The Sept. 27 opening of the Pops series with Matthew Morrison
  • The Oct. 1 Dark Secrets: Bluebeard and Chihuly special event
  • The Nov. 7 Music of Led Zeppelin show
  • The Dec. 10 performance by Celtic Thunder
  • The Dec. 19-21 BlueCross Blue ShieldHoliday Pops concerts featuring Sal Andolina's Big Band and vocalist James Torme
  • The March 14 BPO debut of Broadway sensation Megan Hilty.

Matthew Morrison made his national reputation as the eternally optimistic teacher on "Glee," but is also a dedicated Broadway performer, with major roles in shows like "Hairspray" and "The Light in the Piazza." On the heels of his successful June PBS special "Where It All Began," he opens the BPO's 2014-15 Pops Series with his own spin on the Broadway music that gave him his start.

Bela Bartok's psychological thriller opera "Bluebeard's Castle" has been given an extra dimension with a set designed by internationally renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly. On Oct. 1, the BPO will become only the third orchestra in America to stage this version of "Bluebeard's Castle." JoAnn Falletta will lead the orchestra in this opening of the Know the Score series. In addition to the tickets on sale for $29, a $75 VIP package provides patrons with an intimate look at the set, reserved seating for the concert, a drink ticket for the post-concert reception, and a book on the works of Chihuly.

The Music of Led Zeppelin has sold out previous shows at the BPO. The symphonic tribute to one of rock's most original and enduringly popular bands returns on Nov. 7. Brent Havens is on the podium, and Randy Jackson provides vocals for this ultimate classic rock show.
