Published May 7, 2015

Music in Buffalo’s Historic Places, an innovative concert series held in unique venues around the city, will present violinist and UB faculty member Yuki Numata Resnick in a free concert in the Common Council Chamber in Buffalo City Hall.

The concert will take place from noon to 1 p.m. May 14. It is free and open to the public. Free tickets can be reserved online.

Joining Resnick, assistant professor in the Department of Music, will be cellist Jonathan Golove, UB associate professor of music, and her husband, trumpeter Kyle Resnick.

The program will feature solo and duo works by Antheil, Bach, Bartok and Honegger.

The Common Council chamber, officially opened in January 1932, is one of Buffalo’s most revered civic spaces. Widely regarded as one of the finest city council chambers in the country, it features a beautiful stained-glass sunburst and inlaid walnut woodwork. The chamber is ringed by stone pillars representing the virtues council members are expected to maintain.

The concert is sponsored by UB’s Robert and Carol Morris Center for 21st Century Music and the city of Buffalo.

Eric Huebner, UB assistant professor of music, is founding artistic director of Music in Buffalo’s Historic Places.
