Albany Pro Musica

Our 35th Anniversary Season

2015-2016

This season we celebrate APM’s 35th anniversary and our first year as the chorus-in-residence at the beautiful Troy Savings Bank Music Hall. Our own Stephen Murray will be our anniversary year composer-in-residence as we honor the past and embrace the future with diverse and innovative programs that will appeal to a broad audience: from the choral-orchestral works of the great masters that define APM and Troy’s historic Music Hall, to beloved Christmas music in a new thrilling format with orchestra, to timeless Broadway standards that will touch your hearts. The season will finish with a grand finale inspired by Albany’s history as a city of immigrants. This collaborative concert with The Musicians of Ma’alwyck, the Capital District Youth Chorale and Saratoga Springs Nacre Dance Company will be the culmination of a week of festivities throughout the Capital Region, including art exhibitions, lectures and other educational activities which will celebrate the region’s rich cultural heritage.

This season will also provide an opportunity for our generous donors to celebrate with us at two unique events: The festive reception at the October opening concert and the spring Gala-Concert featuring the Dueling Brothers. Happy Anniversary!

Please join us as we celebrate Albany Pro Musica’s 35 years of choral excellence, Maestro Griggs-Janower’s extraordinary legacy and Maestro Flores-Caraballo’s exciting vision for the future.
