At the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards, Buffalo’s very own Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus along with Maestro JoAnn Falletta, chorus masters James K. Bass and Adam Luebke, the UCLA Chamber Singers, and composer Richard Danielpour won a GRAMMY award for Best Choral Performance. The award was won for their NAXOS recording of Richard Danielpour’s ‘The Passion of Yeshua’, considered to be “a classic for all time” by Maestro JoAnn Falletta.


If you’ve ever witnessed Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus in action, news of this prestigious, well deserved award won’t come as a shock. It might interest you to know that this is not the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra’s first GRAMMY award. In 2008, the orchestra won a GRAMMY for their recording of “Mr. Tambourine Man: Seven Poems of Bob Dylan.”
