The Grammy Award–winning Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra transforms Rockwell Hall into the Fillmore East as it celebrates the Grateful Dead’s legendary 1970 concert that blanketed New York in tie-dyed tones. Throughout the evening, the classical ensemble administers a musical makeover of The Dead’s psychedelic jams, sewing symphonic measures into Phil Lesh’s iconic bass lines and mimicking Jerry Garcia’s face-melting riffs by setting cellos on fire. Grateful Dead tribute band Forever Young joins the orchestra on stage to help turn back the hands of time, and endorsement from the Grateful Dead’s management prods fans young and old to reconvene for the one-night-only binge on infectious grooves and improvised air-oboe solos.

Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra

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 large number of CDs including Holiday Classics and Built for Buffalo that are available for sale.

Customer Reviews

I loved the performance and would recommend it enthusiastically. Kleinhan's is a wonderful venue. One of the top rated restaurants converted the basement of Kleinhan's into a dining room and serves gourmet dinner before the performance. Another local favorite eatery in a suburban area east of Buffalo provides a dinner package which includes a deluxe motor coach transportation to and from Kleinhan's. As Kleinhan's is in a neighborhood close to the downtown area, parking can be an issue.
