Music Notes: Kings Singers

Kings Singers

Noted British vocal group comes to town.By Bill Raffel, WBFO

Buffalo, NY – The Kings Singers hold court tomorrow (Tuesday 10/7), to open the Ramsi Tick Concert Series. Good morning. I'm Bill Raffel with Music Notes.

This concert series is very unique in that it's all or nothing. In order to see the Kings Singers, you must purchase a 160 dollar ticket that also admits you to performances by the Waverly Consort, Violinist Pinchas Zucherman, Mezzo-Soprano Rinat Shaham, and Pianist Peter Serkin. All these performances take place in Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, near the corner of Main and North Streets.

The Kings Singers are an acappella sextet. Groupings of four seem more common in chamber music. But countertenor David Hurley says the original members of the group founded it very informally.

See David Hurley and the other members of the Kings Singers Tuesday (10/7) at 8:15 p.m. in Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, as part of the Ramsi Tick concert series. No single tickets are available, only season subscriptions for 160 dollars apiece.

Also this week, Pianist Marc-Andre Hamelin performs Saturday (10/11) at 8 p.m. in Slee Hall on UB's North Campus. An originally-scheduled pre-concert talk has been cancelled.

The Buffalo Philharmonic's new Principal Pops Conductor Marvin Hamlisch leads a tribute to Lerner and Lowe Friday (10/10) and Saturday (10/11) nights at 8 p.m. in Kleinhans. Then on Sunday (10/12) at 2:30 p.m. Assistant Conductor Ron Spigelman conducts chamber works for winds and strings in the Mary Seaton Room of Kleinhans, as part of the orchestra's Intimate Portraits series.

The Amherst Chamber Ensembles presents Music for Two, Four or More, Saturday (10/11) at 7:30 p.m. in Christ United Methodist Church, at the corner of Harlem and Saratoga Roads in Snyder.

Cellist Marty Artmann joins Pianist Frieda Manes Sunday (10/12) at 3:30 p.m. in the Unity Church on Delaware Avenue near Auburn.
