The 91-year-old Albany Symphony has a lot to be happy about this season. Besides landing its second Grammy Award earlier this year, the symphony orchestra, which will be taking the stage this October for the first time since 2020, will also be celebrating Music Director David Alan Miller’s 30th anniversary with the orchestra.
Miller and the symphony will return to the Palace Theatre stage on Saturday, October 9, at 7:30pm. The program features Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, “Eroica”; Jean Sibelius’ Lemminkäinen Suite; and Coincident Dances by modern composer Jessie Montgomery.
“We are so thrilled to gather again, and to be able to make beautiful music with and for our patrons and friends here in the Capital Region and beyond,” says Miller. “This season is a special one for us. The musicians and I can’t wait to share this program celebrating heroism, community, and the healing power of great music with you.”
From now until the end of November 2021, patrons will be required to present proof of vaccination and matching ID upon arrival, or, alternatively, proof of a negative COVID test result taken within 48 hours of the event. Patrons will be required to wear masks while indoors, regardless of vaccination status.
Opening night, along with all Albany Symphony subscription concerts this season, is also being streamed live online to increase access for patrons who cannot attend in person, or live too far away to come to the concert hall. Tickets, including livestream access, start at $20 and are available here.
