Penfield Television

 

“One high point was an a cappella turn by the Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus, led by its director, Adam Luebke. The chorus’ singers, clearly enjoying their time in the spotlight, took this gem [‘Unclouded Day’] at a good clip and gave it their all. Their performance was joyous and crisp. One of these Memorial Days, maybe we could let them do a whole set of songs by themselves. This one song made me want to hear more.”
