Avant-garde spirit lives in ‘A Musical Feast’ in Buffalo

Source: The Buffalo News.

In the 1960s and ’70s, the musical avant-garde flourished in Buffalo, exemplified by the Creative Associates at the University at Buffalo. Its shock waves reached Kleinhans Music Hall, where the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra‘s music director, Lukas Foss, embraced the experimentation.

That old spirit lives on in the concert series called “A Musical Feast.” Organizers describe the season-opening program as “a multimedia event, very much in the now hallowed tradition of performances by the Creative Associates.”
