Michele Ragusa sings selections from <i>The Music Man</i> with BPO

Michele Ragusa

By Eileen Buckley


Buffalo, NY – The stage at Kleinhan's Music Hall will be transformed into the 1912 fictional River City, Iowa for one night as the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra presents The Music Man.

The show is under the direction of MusicalFare's Randall Kramer. It will feature two Buffalo natives. Broadway performers Michele Ragusa will star with Jeffry Denman. WBFO'S Eileen Buckley talked to Ragusa about the performance and plans to do Funny Girl with the BPO in the spring of 2011.

The Music Man is part of the BPO's Pop Concert for one show only, Saturday night at 8pm at Kleinhan's.
