The BPO's Diversity Council presents

Opening Doors | Thursday, June 20, 2019 | 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

This fundraiser supports the BPO’s efforts to build diversity in classical music and ensure there is an open door for everyone at the BPO. Featuring food, drink, music and basket raffles featuring fantastic items from Shea’s Performing Arts Center, Buffalo Harbor Cruises, Lockhouse Distillery, Russell’s Steakhouse, Buffalo Zoo and so many more!

Funds raised at Opening Doors will support multiple initiatives, including free community performances on the East and West sides of Buffalo, school visits and performances by the young winner of the national Sphinx Competition (a prestigious competition for black and Hispanic string players) and a new afterschool music program at Buffalo Public School #30.

We invite you to join in this important work by becoming a sponsor of the event. With your sponsorship, you not only help position the BPO to successfully continue and grow these important programs, your business also receives significant marketing and promotion to over 200,000 BPO concert attendees in our shared community annually.
