A City of Immigrants

albany pro musica city of immigrants

A month-long series of local events, exhibits, talks, and screenings focused on the experience of immigrants starts this week. "A City of Immigrants" is organized by Albany Pro Musica, which will cap the month with a special concert at Troy Music Hall in April. Blurbage:

Throughout our history, many immigrant groups have chosen to make this place their home, each group bringing with them the values and special talents which define the vibrancy and uniqueness of our region. The concert, A City of Immigrants, has been conceived and developed by Albany Pro Musica's Artistic Director, Dr. Jose Daniel Flores-Caraballo, as an homage to this rich cultural heritage and to the many immigrant groups which have made our region strong and enduring, and whose very differences have enriched us all. This concert will be preceded by a three- week, capital region-wide celebration of our unique cultural heritage , through exhibits, lectures and other events.

The Albany Pro Music concert is April 3 at the Troy Music Hall. Tickets are $25 and $35 / $15 for students.

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
