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...

I feel that when people don't confront inappropriate behavior it sends a signal that it is tolerated. I often speak up in situations like these, depending on my reading of the situation. If we consider ourselves part of a community we all have a role to play in signaling what is and isn't appropriate behavior.

How should we respond when someone is being clearly inappropriate in public?
