In the early 19th century, Buffalo was the 8th largest city in the United States. At that time we were both an industrial and a commercial center. As a result, Buffalo had a share of wealthy people who hired architects to design houses for them. Buffalo is happy because we have such a wealth of architectural delights, including several Frank Lloyd Wright designs. Frank Lloyd Wright designed a unique apartment for the wealthy Buffalo businessman Darwin D. Martin and his family in 1903-1905. The most important and highly developed Frank Lloyd Wright prairie home in the United States, Darwin D. Martin The House was granted national historic status in 1986. This house is considered by leading scientists Frank Lloyd Wright as one of Wright’s best achievements of the Prairie Age and, indeed, his entire career. It is here that the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra will present its third concert on January 12 in the series “Out of the Box”.
Buffalo is fortunate to have one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most iconic designs in the center of our city. Martin’s house is a masterpiece of art, like the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. When BPO musicians Cheryl Hadeka (horn), Jeffrey Hardcasl (trumpet) and Tim Smith (trombone) celebrate the restoration of this internationally famous 20th century architecture by performing the Pulenc Sonata, join us for trumpet, trumpet and trombone.

For 85 years, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra has provided West New York with amazing music. Over the years, they have performed classics from greats such as Beethoven, Bach and Mozart, but also a more contemporary selection by musicians such as the Beatles, Grateful Dead and Eagles. They organized concerts that included both Harry Potter fandoms and Star Wars. There is something for everyone!
The BPO, founded in 1935, is an integral part of Buffalo. It moved to his permanent home, the Kleinhans Music Hall, in the 1940s. During the Great Depression, the orchestra was initially supported with funding from the Administration of Progressive Affairs and the Ambulance Bureau. Over the decades, the orchestra has grown among outstanding music directors, including William Steinberg, Joseph Crips, Lucas Foss, Michael Tilson Thomas, Julius Rudel, Semyon Bychkov, and Maximiano Valdes. Many loving singers graced the orchestra stage, including Sergei Rachmaninoff, Isaac Stern, Aaron Copland, Van Cliburn, and Yo-Yo Ma. The Buffalo Philharmonic has performed more than 50 recordings throughout its history. It has toured abroad twice: a six-month European tour in 1988 and a four-city tour of Poland in 2018.
