Maestro JoAnn Falletta’s 20th Anniversary Celebration - October 18, 2019
A fundraising event to support the BPO’s education and community engagement programs.
JoAnn Falletta’s 20th anniversary dinner affair is a glorious black-tie event that will take place at 6 PM at Hotel Henry on the Richardson Olmsted Campus, a location chosen both as a venue devoted to the arts, and a landmark property symbolic of the transformation of the City of Buffalo over the past 20 years.
Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served on the third floor with live music representing the varied offerings of the BPO, along with an exclusive art and memorabilia exhibit celebrating the past 20 years in Buffalo and at the BPO. At 7 p.m., dinner catered by the hotel will begin on the fourth floor banquet room. A video piece, produced by WNED | WBFO, and guest speakers will pay tribute to Maestro Falletta throughout the evening. After dinner, guests will be treated to a musical performance by a special celebrity performer whose identity will remain secret until that night.
Individual tickets to the Hotel Henry evening affair are $1,000* and on sale now!
