Space Coast Symphony Orchestra Conductor and Artistic Director, Aaron T. Collins, has his own guest engagement with the Buffalo Philharmonic in early January, but has no doubts about the popularity of the musical fare performed in his absence.
“We have chosen some of the very best music ever written for Broadway for this concert,” said Collins. “And the caliber of soloists we have assembled will be a pure delight for the audience. There’s no better way to start the New Year.”
