Celebrating through music and dance the rich mosaic of cultures that has shaped our region, Albany Pro Musica’s concert features guest performances by The Musicians of Ma’alwyck, The Capital District Youth Chorale, and Saratoga Springs Nacre Dance Company and the world premiere of a specially commissioned work by resident composer Steve Murray.
Throughout our history, many immigrant groups have chosen to make this place their home, each group bringing with them the values and special talents which define the vibrancy and uniquen ess of our region. The concert, A City of Immigrants, has been conceived and developed by Albany Pro Musica's Artistic Director, Dr. Jose Daniel Flores-Caraballo, as an homage to this rich cultural heritage and to the many immigrant groups which have made our region strong and enduring, and whose very differences have enriched us all. This concert will be preceded by a three- week, capital region-wide celebration of our unique cultural heritage , through exhibits, lectures and other events.
