Jaman Dunn is the new Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra's assistant conductor and outreach coordinator. He wants to expand the BPO's reach into the Western New York community and spoke to WBFO's Nick Lippa about how it can be done.

Dunn had quite the journey getting to Buffalo. He grew up in Chicago, completed his undergraduate studies at Ohio State University, where he formed his own orchestra, and graduated from the Boston Conservatory this past May.
