JOHNSON CITY (WBNG)-- On August 4, the Binghamton Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO) will host their final "Concerts in Every Corner" performance.
These concerts started as a pandemic project which allowed soloist musicians to continue playing music throughout the community. Executive Director Dr. Paul Cienniwa said this concert series not only allows musicians to connect with the community but it's also an opportunity to advocate for the arts..
"Our mission is to keep bringing live music to all of our community and all aspects of our community," Cienniwa said. "As not just enrichment of the arts but also just a way to communicate with people and to find that common ground through great music."
The Concerts in Every Corner series may be coming to a close but there are still plenty of other opportunities to enjoy some live music. The BPO will continue to offer their Summer Chamber Music series throughout the month of August.
"These concerts, like Concerts in Every Corner is a series that brings us to communities that we don't normally reach" Cienniwa said.
The upcoming August concerts are ticketed general admission events, featuring the Trio Pastorale Woodwind Ensemble and Unanimous Four. Tickets are $25 for general admission or $40 for both if purchased at the same time.
