Important Update


Dear Friends of Buffalo Choral Arts Society,

As our community in Western New York comes to grips 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 are faced with the stark reality that we must postpone “An Afternoon with Dan Forrest” on April 26, 2020 at St. Joseph Cathedral.

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.  Until then, we’d like to offer you some options.


First, should you choose to have a refund, simply mail the ticket to: BCAS, PO Box 281, Amherst, NY  14226 with your name and address for refund.

Second, any tickets you may have purchased for the April date 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.

Third, as you can well imagine, this crisis impacts the WNY arts community beyond measure.  You may want to contribute the price you paid to help defray our financial losses.

Beatles to Broadway Riviera Theatre Performance

Regarding our concert on June 7, 2020 at the Riviera Theatre, we are still awaiting directives from New York State as to whether this date is a possibility.  We will notify you as we get closer to that date.

We look forward to our 2020-2021 concert season. On behalf of all of us at Buffalo Choral Arts Society, thank you for your continued support and understanding.

With All Best Wishes,

Kevin P. Phalen
