We at the Center are gearing up for Tim Fain's critically-acclaimed multimedia work Portals, at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 25, in the Drama Theater in the Center for Performing Arts. We are also pleased to report that the next day, on Saturday, Jan. 26, Fain will offer a question-and-answer session and masterclass in Kleinhans Music Hall, where he will mentor three young students from the Buffalo area.

More information is provided by the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra press release below:

It is free and open to the public. The Mary Seaton Room will be given a coffeehouse feel, with complimentary hot beverages and pastries. 

"Three local music students have been chosen to receive coaching. Mandela Namaste is a sophomore at Williamsville East High School and a student at Buffalo Suzuki Strings. Teagan Faran is a junior at Williamsville East High School and performs with the Greater Buffalo Youth Orchestra. Amirah Muhammed serves on the BPO Youth Outreach Committee, and is a homeschooled 11-year-old who studies at the Muhammad School of Music. Fain will also answer questions from the audience.

"Fain performs on a 1717 violin made by Francesco Gobetti in Venice. The violin is on loan to him from Clement and Karen Arrison through the Stradivari Society of Chicago. Karen Arrison serves on the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra's board of trustees and spearheaded the efforts to bring Fain to Western New York."
