$20 general admission / $15 for Members / $5 for students

In 1964, Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra Music Director Lukas Foss created the Center of the Creative and Performing Arts at the University at Buffalo with a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation. The Center’s Creative Associates presented a regular concert series in the Albright-Knox’s Auditorium that revolutionized the music world and helped establish Buffalo as the epicenter of contemporary, avant-garde music in the 1960s and 1970s. This program celebrates this exciting time of musical innovation in Buffalo’s history.


Individual concert tickets are $20 general admission, $15 for Members, and $5 for students. Tickets can be purchased online, by phone at 716.270.8292, or in person at the Albright-Knox Admissions Desk. Concerts often sell out in advance of each performance, so please order tickets early to avoid disappointment.
