Buffalo, NY – A local concert series celebrates its 40th anniversary by repeating its inaugural performance, including the same artist. Good morning. I'm Bill Raffel with Music Notes.

Starting this Friday (10/4) at 12:30 p.m., Saint Paul's Episcopal Cathedral will begin a new season of half-hour lunchtime recitals. Saint Paul's Organist and Choirmaster Dale Adelmann says the series gives local musicians an opportunity to perform chamber works and gives office workers a different way of spending their lunch hour.

Johann Sebastian Bach's famous Toccata and Fugue in D Minor is one of the works Saint Paul's former Organist Donald Ingram will play Friday at 12:30 p.m. in the Cathedral, at the corner of Pearl and Church downtown. St. Paul's Assistant Organist Andy Kotylo has put the full schedule together for the rest of the season. And thanks to Dale Adelmann for joining us on Music Notes.

Also this week, Flutist Cheryl Gobetti Hoffman is preparing for a recital in Carnegie Hall. And she'll treat Western New Yorkers to a preview tomorrow (Tuesday, 10/1) at 8 p.m. in Slee Hall on UB's North Campus.

The Sal Andolina Quartet pays tribute to Benny Goodman Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the Jewish Community Center of Greater Buffalo. Located at 2640 North Forest Road in Amherst.

Contemporary Country Singer Kathy Mattea joins the Buffalo Philharmonic for a New Attitudes Concert Friday at 7:30 p.m. in Kleinhans. Then the BPO welcomes pianist Andre Michel Schub for Brahms' First Piano Concerto. Music Director Joann Falletta will also conduct the Adagio movement from Mahler's Tenth Symphony, along with Mozart's Serenata Notturna. There'll be two performances, Saturday (10/5) at 8 p.m. and Sunday (10/6) at 2:30 p.m. in Kleinhans, with preconcert talks an hour earlier.

I'm Bill Raffel. Have a great week!
