Valerian Ruminski Sings at Silo City

[OPERA] What do you do when you walk through the Marine A silos at Silo City? Why, you sing, of course. Or shout. Or clap your hands—anything to test the acoustics of the open, 90-foot-high, concrete amplification system. This Friday, May 20, how about you leave the singing to a professional: Valerian Ruminski, the internationally renowned opera bass who founded Nickel City Opera, will sing a program called Echoes of Opera II at the silos at 6pm, comprising American operetta by Victor Herbert and medley of American art songs, with Ivan Docenko on piano. There will be a cash bar featuring a brewed-for-the-occasion offering from Flying Bison, and, because it’s a Buffalo art happy hour, there will be food trucks. Your $5 admission helps to fund performances of SHOT!, Nickel City’s dramatization of  the assassination of President William McKinley at the 1901 Pan American Exposition in Buffalo, to be staged at Shea’s June 10 & 12. Don’t miss it: Lacking any grain, this is what grain silos are for. —GEOFF KELLY
