BCP AT THE AK: I Heard It at the AK

In 1964, Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra Music Director Lukas Foss created the Center of the Creative and Performing Arts at the University at Buffalo with a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation. The Center’s Creative Associates presented a regular concert series in the Albright-Knox’s Auditorium that revolutionized the music world and helped establish Buffalo as the epicenter of contemporary, avant-garde music in the 1960s and 1970s. This program celebrates this exciting time of musical innovation in Buffalo’s history.
