Important Update


Dear Friends of Buffalo Choral Arts Society,

As our community in Western New York continues to deal with this unprecedented COVID-19 Health Crisis, we want to assure you that our primary concern is for your health and well-being. Additionally, we face mandates by New York State affecting public gatherings.

As a result, we're faced with the stark reality that, in addition to postponing “An Afternoon with Dan Forrest” on April 26, 2020 at St. Joseph Cathedral, we must also cancel our "Beatles to Broadway" concert that was scheduled for June 7, 2020 at the Riviera Theatre.

Rescheduling "An Afternoon with Dan Forrest"

Our Music Director, Marcia A. Giambrone, is in contact with Dan Forrest to arrange a new date for this concert sometime in the 2020-2021 concert season.  We will keep in close contact with you as we finalize a date.


To obtain a refund for tickets you may have purchased for either concert, simply mail the ticket(s) to: BCAS, PO Box 281, Amherst, NY 14226 with your name and address for a refund. Or contact the Box Office at 716.775.SONG (7664).

If you choose, any tickets you may have purchased for the Dan Forrest concert will be honored on the new date. This concert will be a memorable afternoon for all, and we hope you choose to remain in the audience. Also, in the event that there is a ticket price increase next year, holding on to your ticket guarantees the price you paid.

As you can well imagine, this crisis impacts the WNY arts community beyond measure. You also have the option to contribute the price you paid for your concert ticket(s) to help defray our financial losses.

BCAS 2020-2021 season

We're already looking forward to our 2020-2021 concert season, and we're enthusiastically planning for a joyful return to performing in the fall. On behalf of all of us at Buffalo Choral Arts Society, thank you for your continued support and understanding. We wish you and your family good health and encourage you to stay safe until we can gather together again. We invite you to visit our "Listen" page in the meantime to enjoy some of our previous concert performances.

With All Best Wishes,

Kevin P. Phalen
