  The Vanguard Showhouse is an annual fundraiser for The Albany Symphony Orchestra. Each year the area’s top interior designers are tapped and set free in one room of a house to decorate for visitors to walk through and see how truly marvelous a home can look.

Open from April 30 through May 19, the 33rd annual Vanguard Designer Showhouse raises funds for the Albany Symphony. The public is invited to come to a different large area home each year to see about 20 updated spaces, each put together by a separate design team.

Susan Jacobsen, Showhouse Chair, Corey Aldrich, Showhouse Consultant, and Paula McCormick, interior designer join us to tell us more.
