Though playing 120 concerts a year is a dream for some musicians, it's a reality for members of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. The classical musicians perform concerts at their home base, Kleinhans Music Hall, as well as throughout the U.S. In doing so, they introduce listeners to music ranging from Tchaikovsky to Duke Ellington, a task they've been up to since the orchestra's founding in 1934. In addition to performing live, they've also released a number of CDs that pay homage to George Gershwin and Bob Dylan, the famous triangle player.

Darren Ko took his first crack at the SAT in 7th grade as part of a youth talent search program. He qualified for the program by scoring in the top 30 percent of testers—which included high school seniors. Years later, on the actual SAT, Darren achieved a 1590 before moving on to teach SAT classes in college.

Having mastered the test, Darren opened Infiniva Tutoring in 2001 in order to reach more students. The operation has flourished over the years and has branched out past the SAT to prep students for other major tests including the ACT, GMAT, and MCAT. Darren has recruited an all-star team of tutors, most of who have scored in the top one percent on the SAT. They strive to help bridge the gap between students and their individual goals, whether it be getting into a renowned college or beating a wax statue of Einstein in Scrabble.

Southtowns's mix of cardio equipment, weight machines, and 15 fitness classes add spice to dragging workouts to maximize overall health while minimizing waistlines. A full roster of classes such as Zumba, Tai Chi, yoga, Spinning, and boot camp promotes toned physiques in fun, encouraging sessions, and activates all muscle systems, like a slap fight with a squid. The gym's Body Sculpting class, for example, attacks lethargy by challenging participants with free weights, resistant bands, and core-buttressing Pilates. After a heart-pumping session on the gym's cardio machines, exercisers can refuel with a beverage at the juice bar. Nutritional guidance and an accountability club help arm guests against fitness slumps, encouraging patrons to stick with health regimens when schedules get busy. The gym also accommodates parents with free daycare by reservation during peak hours, and towel service in the facility's locker rooms prevents clients from having to work out in a linen closet. Check the fitness center's schedule for full class details.

Having made the transition from customer to trainer, fitness buff Ron Griffin can testify to the empathy and efficacy of the studio's workouts, which encompass boot-camps as well as one-on-one and group lessons.
