The Jamestown High School Marching Band and A Cappella Choir, with the assistance of a $50,000 Jamestown Local Development Corporation’s Fund for Downtown Programming Grant, will bring the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra to the Reg Lenna Center for the Arts on Friday, July 19, at 7:30 p.m. to perform “The Music of Queen: A Rock Symphony.”

Tickets will go on sale Wednesday. The concert will be a fundraiser for the JHS Red Raider Marching Band and A Cappella’s trip to Disney World in December to help supplement trip costs for all students (the Disney World trip was approved by the Jamestown Board of Education).

“The JHS Marching Band and A Cappella Choir are extremely excited about bringing this performance to the Reg Lenna,” said JHS Band Director Meghan Murray. “The funds raised from this event will help our JHS Marching Band and A Cappella students significantly as we prepare for a trip to Disney World later this year. We are extremely grateful to the Jamestown Local Development Corporation for supporting our efforts. The JHS Music Program is fortunate to have the constant support of our community and we were thrilled to receive this grant award. This will be an amazing show that should excite audiences of all ages. We hope to make this an enjoyable summer evening in downtown Jamestown.”
