The Buffalo Chamber Players explores the synergy of music and dance in a collaboration with Lehrer Dance, an exciting and innovative professional dance company based in Buffalo, NY.

The Buffalo Chamber Players and Lehrer Dance will collaborate in Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s Overture to Les arts florissants, Antonio Vivaldi’s Trio Sonata “La Follia” in D minor, RV 63, and Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cello Suite No.3 in C major, BWV 1009 performed by BPO Associate Principal cellist Feng Hew.

The dance portion of the program will be preceded by instrumental works by three contemporary composers highlighting our local musical talent. BPO bassist Brett Shurtliffe dazzles in Tom Johnson’s fiendishly difficult and aptly titled Failing: A Very Difficult Piece for Solo String Bass, BPO trombonist Timothy Smith sizzles in Corrado Saglietti’s jazz-influenced Suite for alto trombone and string quartet, and the ensemble premieres a new work by BCP composer-in-residence Caroline Mallonée, Curtains of Light: Eight Overlapping Soundscapes for mixed septet.
