The Albany Symphony Orchestra’s American Music Festival will take place at EMPAC in Troy, NY today through Sunday.

The festival concludes David Alan Miller’s 25th anniversary season with the ASO. It will include more than 40 new works presented in more than 15 concerts and events – including “This Land Sings,” a song-cycle by Michael Daugherty inspired by the life and times of Woody Guthrie.

The Albany Symphony Orchestra recently announced its 2016-2017 season, celebrating the 25th anniversary of music director David Alan Miller.

 

There’s a mournful tune playing this week in the Capital Region’s musical community. David Griggs-Janower, who died Sunday from complications of a stroke, was the face of choral music in the region for decades.

Tuesday May 7th, from  7:30 to 10:30pm, WAMC will air a special live performance of The Albany Symphony Orchestra from Carnegie Hall.
