A Look Ahead: This Week at Buffalo State

It’s hard to believe we’re almost halfway through the semester. There’s still a lot to do this week, including a community concert by Buffalo State’s Wind Ensemble, featuring classic wind band work from composers Vincent Persichetti, Chris Pilsner, William Schuman, and John Philip Sousa. Directed by Rick Fleming, professor of music, the concert will be held on Wednesday, October 16, at the Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts, 450 Masten Avenue in Buffalo, starting at 7:30 p.m.
