What a terrible day.

So many people in our relatively small community have been effected by this tragedy, but on behalf of the musicians of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, I would like to offer my sincerest condolences to the families and friends of Coleman Mellett and Gerry Niewood.  Mr Mellet, and Mr. Niewood were musicians and members of the Chuck Mangione Band.  They were traveling to Buffalo to perform with the BPO.

I think it goes without saying that Buffalo will watch the hockey game tonight from a very different perspective.  It’s just a meaningless distraction, but I’ll admit, it’s a welcome distraction after a long day of incredibly sad news.

    I’m so sorry for what your city is going through. We’re all thinking about you all around the country.

    Much love to all y’all up there, but especially to folks who were directly affected. How sad for everyone.

    Just watched extended coverage on the news – words are inadequate. Our thoughts are with all those affected by this tragedy.
