Normally people flood to Christmas concerts around this time of year, but because of COVID-19, those concerts have been nearly impossible to pull off.  But that's not going to stop the Buffalo Philharmonic.

Every year, they hold their annual holiday concert and it is packed.  This year, according to WKBW, they had to think of a different way to do it, but they will still be putting on a concert for you.

They will be holding their version of Messiah on WNED-TV.  It will be a pre-recorded concert and will be shown multiple times over the next week.

What's even better about it is that because it was pre-recorded, they were able to do it in multiple locations.  You will see them perform in places like the Ellicott Square building, Kleinhans Music Hall and St. Josephs Cathedral.

"The pandemic put the squeeze on local choirs and we found a way to persevere through the pandemic." - BPC Music Director Adam Luebke

You can imagine that with 140 people all singing out loud, social distancing and wearing masks would create a problem.  But they all found a way to get it done.

The concert will start being shown on WNED this Monday (December 21) at 9pm and will also be streamed on the WNED-TV website.

And for those of you who really loved last year's performance, they will be re-airing the performance that was recorded at Our Lady of Victory Basilica in Lackawana last year. Re-live this Holiday Tradition with us. Check their website for more details.
