    What: Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra Summer Performance
    Where: 101 Old Falls Street, Niagara Falls, NY 14303
    When: Saturday July 20, 2013
    Time: TBD (evening)

    The director of the Conference and Events center at Old Falls Street has invited us to participate with the BPO summer performance that they are hosting. The concert is a tribute to John Williams and Star Wars Music is planned for the finale.

    I have asked if the BPO is ok with this as well as the host as well as requested secure changing areas. The time is still being determined and will be updated shortly.

    This is a costumed event with assistance needed for a photographer (we will not be taking pictures for guests, they will need their own camera) and one or two handlers, based on the number of costumers and type of costumes available.

    Please post your availability asap.

    AVAILABLE

    As surprising as it is, unavailable. This concert was originally a Rock show at Hard Rock Cafe, I took it off months ago. They changed the concert and location just before Bisons night.
    I have now something planned with family and friends.

    I am working that day. Depending on time we're needed, I could be available as either a handler or Jedi.

    I'm out for this, I am at Shakespeare all day. I actually got asked to do the setup and tear down of the stage for this event by the Stage Hands Union, but can't even do that.

    Here is the update I received:

    Your members may change in their costumes inside the Conference & Event
    Center Niagara Falls
    101 Old Falls Street, Niagara Falls, NY 14303. Any of their belongings
    will be secure there as well.

    We will have parking in the back parking lot. When they arrive, they may
    call me or ring the bell at the staff door at the back of the building.

    The concert starts at 5 with the BPO taking the stage at 7.

    ******

    I reached out again to see what time we are needed. I do not know, nor does our contact know what songs they are performing. The BPO portion is a tribute to John Williams with Star Wars playing last.
