It was a concert honoring the former dean of Eastman School of Music.

The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra performed a special song at the beginning of its concert tonight. The orchestra opened with "Fanfare for Flora", a piece composed by Douglas Lowry. He passed away after a battle with cancer earlier this month.

The orchestra will also honor Lowry at its concert Saturday night.
