WATER MUSIC NY, A MUSICAL EXPERIENCE 200 YEARS IN THE MAKING

Water Music NY is a musical experience two centuries in the making, and a cross-cultural celebration of the bicentennial of New York’s Erie Canal. Through a seven-day musical journey, award-winning artists and composers of the Albany Symphony will perform and collaborate with local arts groups to premiere pieces inspired by each community along the canal. It is Water Music NY’s vision to call attention to the revitalization along New York’s waterway communities, increase tourism and leverage the power of the arts across New York State and beyond.

Developed in close collaboration with the New York State Canal Corporation, Water Music NY is a celebration of New York’s rich history and its vibrant communities through the confluence of art and community whose impact will resound long after the final note fades.
