Albany Symphony Orchestra

by The Staff on April 10, 2014


The Albany Symphony and maestro David Alan Miller want to transport you to exotic lands this Saturday at the Palace with Rimsky-Korsakov’s sweeping, romantic Scheherazade, an Arabian tale with a decidedly Russian flavor.

Before that, however, they’ll premiere Caramore’s Summer, a new work by composer Chen Yi. And they’ll also perform one of the great 20th-century American orchestral works, Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto. The soloist on the Barber will be child-prodigy-turned-young-virtuoso Simone Porter (pictured).

The Albany Symphony Orchestra will perform Saturday (April 12) at 7:30 PM at the Palace Theatre (19 Clinton Ave., Albany). Tickets are $19 to $59. For tickets and info, call 694-3300.
