More than 2,500 Buffalonians nearly filled the gargantuan theater and enthusiastically responded to the our performance. They especially enjoyed the Vivaldi solo for piccolo flute performed by Chief Musician Lue Dollard and the percussion solo by Beall performed by Musician First Class Jason Niehoff, whose dramatic antics during his cadenza offered many opportunities for applause before his piece was over.
During the day, many of us took the opportunity to sample the fantastic food offered by the city of Buffalo—especially important was determining which Buffalo wings were the best. There was no conclusive answer, but the process was very satisfying!
