Tonight: Mir Ali @ the Unitarian Church

The Classics on Elmwood concert series returns tonight from a two-year hiatus with a performance featuring internationally renowned guitarist Mir Ali. Accompanying him will be members of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra Amelie Fradette (cello), Betsy Reeds (flute), and associate concertmaster Amy Glidden (violin). This concert will also function as the quartet’s release of their collaborative CD, Amistad. Mir Ali, the Pakistani-born virtuoso, has graced these pages many times, and more notable accomplishments include composing music for movies, theater, radio, and TV—most recently for the documentary “Roots and Branches” which won the Award of Excellence from the Film Advisory Board of Hollywood. Amistad is Ali’s first recording in seven years, making this event a long-awaited revival for both the muscians and the Classics on Elmwood series.
