In the greater world of music, cross-over artists will always be a rare item. But the challenge to swing freely between the classical repertoire and the realm of jazz has been met straight away by saxophonist-clarinetist virtuoso Sal Andolina.
As a solo touring artist, Sal has appeared at major venues across the United States, including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in New York, and in Los Angeles on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.
Since 1994, Mr. Andolina has held the position of clarinetist, bass clarinetist and saxophonist with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, where he has been featured as a supporting soloist with Marvin Hamlish and Doc Severinsen, and a variety of distinguished performers including Diana Reeves, Natalie Cole, Nancy Wilson, Maureen McGovern and John Pizzarelli.
In addition to appearing as featured soloist with Joann Falletta and the BPO , Sal has appeared with the New York City Pops at Carnegie Hall, Rochester Philharmonic, the Grand Rapids Symphony, Niagara Symphony, the Fresno Philharmonic and Virginia Symphony Orchestra among others.
Performing its inaugural concert season in fall 2009, the Buffalo State Philharmonia is under the direction of Paul Ferington. Maestro Ferington boasts an impressive list of accomplishments as a conductor, professor, and administrator. His tireless work as a staff conductor of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra had delighted capacity audiences throughout Western New York for over 25 years.
The Philharmonia is composed of Buffalo State College faculty, music majors, non-music majors, area professional musicians, local music educators, and community enthusiasts who are committed to performing the symphonic repertoire at a high level.
