Albany Symphony season 2017-2018

troy savings bank music hall

As usual, the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall will be one of the venues to host the ASO during the next season.

The schedule for the next Albany Symphony season -- the 2017-2018 season -- is out. It includes a weekend of Mozart, a weekend of Gershwin, and performances of new music by living composers.

Tickets for many of the dates are available via a season subscription. (Individual date tickets will be available later on.)

And, of course, the ASO's current season is in progress, with handful of dates over the next few months.

Without further ado...

There's a lot of talk about special mowers & building bathrooms & that's nice, yes, let's do that, certainly. But *right now* people using this trail are hungry & want to buy food & drink (& use the bathroom, as a paying customer): if the businesses that are already there were OPEN it would go a long way to providing amenities & destinations. ...
