Friday: Orchard Park Symphony Opens Season w/Simon Boyar

The Orchard Park Symphony will open its 62nd season Friday, October 22 at 7:30pm in the Orchard Park High School Auditorium. The concert, under the direction of conductor David Rudge, will feature a performance by renowned percussionist, Simon Boyar.

A Juilliard graduate, Mr. Boyar is a ground-breaking musician, excelling both as a performer and creator in a variety of genres, from hip-hop to jazz to classical. He has performed throughout the world, electrifying his audiences with his performances, and transforming the perception of percussion, especially the marimba, as a solo instrument. He will be performing Jorge Sarmiento’s Marimba Concerto.

The concert will open with the Overture to Beatrice and Benedict by Hector Berlioz, and conclude with Robert Schumann’s Symphony No. 1.  Tickets are $12, $9 for seniors and free for students with ID. Please note that all concerts this season will be held at the Orchard Park High School, not at the Middle School. For more information go to
