Western New York fans of David Bowie will have a chance to come together and celebrate his towering musical legacy at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 30.

The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and Jeans n' Classics will present "The Music of David Bowie" inside Kleinhans Music Hall, 3 Symphony Circle, Buffalo.

Tickets range from $29-$49 with a limited number of $75 VIP tickets. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 30, and are available by visiting bpo.org, calling 716-885-5000 or going to the Kleinhans Music Hall box office during business hours.

"David Bowie was a one-of-a-kind artist whose extraordinary genius touched the lives of generations of music lovers," BPO Executive Director Daniel Hart said. "Many of our musicians and staff were saddened by his passing, and it is our honor to join with Jeans n' Classics to present this tribute to him."

As Buffalo's cultural ambassador, the Grammy Award-winning BPO, under the leadership of music director JoAnn Falletta, presents more than 100 concerts each year. Since 1940, the orchestra's home has been Kleinhans Music Hall, a National Historic Landmark with a reputation as one of the finest concert halls in the U.S. During the Falletta's tenure, the BPO rekindled its history of radio broadcasts and recordings, including the release of 36 new recordings on the Naxos and Beau Fleuve labels.
