Event Details

Buffalo String Works (BSW) is excited to announce the next installment of our cross-cultural, interdisciplinary arts series The Bridge. For each of us, our family and our culture make up integral parts of our identity. In this concert Through Folk Music, Buffalo String Works presents music derived from deep, personal connections between composers and the folk music of their own cultures – from Italy and Ireland to Armenia, Nepal, Burma, and Hungary. The use of folk music as inspiration is a way for composers to form a bridge from themselves to their ancestry as well as from their cultures to new audiences. These musical bridges bring communities together, inspiring us individually and collectively, whether we are refugees, immigrants, or native Buffalonians.

This evening of folk-inspired music is performed by Buffalo String Works Teaching Artists and conducted by Jaman Dunn, Associate Conductor of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and BSW Orchestra Director, on Wednesday, November 20 at 6:30pm at D’Youville Academic Center, 6th floor. As with all performances of The Bridge, admission is free and a social hour with light refreshments follows.

Repertoire includes Rumanian Dances, Belā Bartok; Libertango and Oblivion, Astor Piazzolla; Karen Song (trad. Burma); Resham Firiri (trad. Nepal); Groung, Mary Kouyoumdjian; Ancient Airs and Dances, Ottorino Respighi; and traditional Irish fiddle tunes.
