Tickets For An Evening With the BPO at Graycliff on June 3, 2021are Available Beginning Next Week

The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO) has teamed up with Graycliff for a very special in-person concert experience this June. The musical evening will feature a chamber group of BPO musicians performing on the lakeside of Graycliff’s main house.

The concert is planned for June 3rd with a rain date of June 4th and will include cocktail hour, a one-hour concert, and time to have a self-guided twilight tour of the exterior grounds at Graycliff. Tickets will be available first to BPO subscribers and Graycliff members and then to the general public beginning on Friday, May 7th.


Tickets are $150 ($125 for BPO 2020-2021 season subscribers and Graycliff members) and includes event admission, wine and beer, a gourmet snack box by Osteria 166, a pair of Graycliff tour coupons to be used during the 2021 season ($50 value) and a recently released BPO concert CD. We encourage your party to purchase tickets together in a single transaction to ensure seating will be together as we work to ensure distancing compliance with pandemic restrictions.

For tickets and more information, visit or call (716) 885-5000. Ticket sales will close on May 31st. This limited fundraising event will benefit both the BPO and Graycliff. 

“After a year of virtual fundraising events, we are thrilled to be able to offer this unique in-person experience on the grounds of Graycliff. This intimate concert is planned for the magic hour at Graycliff where the house will glow from within as you relax and enjoy the talents of the BPO musicians. We hope that the historic grounds paired with incredible music will offer an entertaining and memorable escape. “

Graycliff’s Executive Director, Anna Kaplan
