"The Buffalo Philharmonic and I are delighted to support BRAVO, which is a much needed addition to musical life in Western New York.  The artistic skills that young people learn through the serious study of chamber music deeply enrich their musical development.  BPO Principal Cellist Roman Mekinulov brings superb musicianship and profound artistry to this new venture."
