By Popular Demand, RPO Offers Additional Friends and Love Concert

March 13, 2007

Third concert will take place on Sunday, May 27 at 7:00 p.m.

Rochester, NY – Due to popular demand and swift ticket sales for the upcoming Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra’s Friends and Love concert with Chuck Mangione, Don Potter, Bat McGrath, Tony Levin, Gap Mangione, Lew Soloff and Gerry Neiwood, the RPO has announced that it has added a third concert to take place on Sunday, May 27, 2007 at 7:00 p.m.  This concert is in addition to the May 25 and 26 concerts.  Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, March 14 at 10 a.m.

Tickets for these performances are $20-$56, available online 24/7 at www.rpo.org, by phone (454-2100) and in person from the RPO Box Office, as well as at any Wegmans locations.  RPO Box Office Hours are Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. (non-concert Saturdays, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.). Wegmans is open seven days a week. A convenience fee may apply.  The WPOP Series is sponsored by Wegmans; this concert is sponsored by Xerox with additional support provided by Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield.  Chuck Mangione’s appearance is sponsored by the Harold and Judy Samloff Family Fund.

The now legendary 1970 Friends & Love concert with the RPO at the Eastman Theatre featured Chuck Mangione’s compositions for full symphony orchestra and six accomplished soloists.  This concert was recorded live by WXXI and led to a recording contract with Mercury records and a Grammy nomination.  The original music – combining an eclectic variety of musical idioms – will be completely recreated for these concerts.
