Show Summary Details

Preview

Composer Morton Feldman comes to Buffalo as the visiting Slee Professor of Music and enters into a mutually appreciative relationship with the Creative Associates. While Michael Tilson Thomas succeeds Lukas Foss as Music Director of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, Foss retains his codirectorship of the Center. The tenth anniversary of the Center is celebrated with a gala concert and its first European tour. Feldman accepts a permanent faculty position and creates the June In Buffalo festival. The festival opens with a week-long residency by John Cage during which time his work Songbooks is performed. The Center's financial footing grows increasingly precarious.
