Opening Night Concert & Gala // September 24, 2016 at the Palace Theatre
Natasha Paremski will make her Albany Symphony debut performing Ravel's Piano Concerto in G. Hailed by critics as fierce and virtuosic, you can expect a striking and dynamic performance. Also on the program is Sibelius' noble 5th Symphony and "Aria" for Hindustani Soprano and Orchestra by Two-time ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Reena Esmail.
Roscoe: An American Grand Opera // October 15, 2016 at the Palace Theatre
The radiant voice of Opera Superstar, Deborah Voigt is matched by Evan Mack's rich compositional technique, and the tragic, yet comic story of Roscoe by Pulitzer price-winning author, William Kennedy.
Premiered this summer at the Seagle Music Colony in Schroon Lake, NY, the Albany Symphony will give new life to Evan Mack's Opera and William Kennedy's political drama at the Palace Theatre, just steps from the fictional home of Roscoe, the motor of Albany's political machine.
Sunday Symphonies For Families
World Series of Music with Coach Dave // October 16, 2016 at the Palace Theatre

Peer Gynt // October 22 and 23, 2016 at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall
Edvard Grieg is a leading Romantic era composer from Norway. While Norway may not be considered a classical music powerhouse, like Italy, Austria, or Germany, Greig was prolific and revered by audiences world-wide. Peer Gynt Suite No. 1 is Grieg's most famous work. Since its premiere, Peer Gynt's iconic melodies have been integrated into pop culture. Grieg's timeless melodies, "Morning Mood" and "In the Hall of the Mountain King" were made popular to general audiences by Bugs Bunny, The Who, and the hit TV show The Simpsons.
Hear Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite No. 1 performed LIVE by the Albany Symphony alongside the Donna Diana Overture (Theme Music for Sgt. Preston of the Yukon), Tchaikovsky's beloved Francesca da Rimini and an Oboe Concerto by American master composer, Christopher Rouse.
