THE NEW SEASON: Capitol Chamber Artists begin their fall season on Saturday night at 8 PM at the First Congregational Church (405 Quail St., Albany) with a concert celebrating the Jewish New Year. Works will span the last 500 years, by composers including Ernest Bloch, Salomon Rossi, Joseph Achron and Norman Thibodeau (a new piece). As usual, there will be a preconcert recital at 7 PM; tickets are $16 general admission and $8 students. Their next performance will be a free program of baroque music at the Washington Park Lakehouse (Albany) on Sept. 30 at 1 PM; their next regular concert at the First Congregational Church is Oct. 6. For more information, call 458-9231.


THE UNVEILING: The Town of New Scotland Historical Association will be dedicating a historical marker at the DeLong-Vanderbilt Farm (Tarrytown Road, Albany County Route 301, New Scotland) at 1 PM on Sept. 22. It’s worth celebrating: This has been a working family farm—in the same family—for over 200 years. Refreshments will be served, and the public is invited.


LET THERE BE BELLY DANCE: New York dancer Tarik Sulton will be the featured performer at the Middle Eastern dance program being presented Habiba’s Middle Eastern Dancers on Saturday night (Sept. 15) at 8 PM at the Arts Center of the Capital Region (265 River St., Troy). Habiba, aka Donna Marie Floyd, usually draws a good turnout for her group’s shows, so arrive early. Tickets are $15 general admission, $10 for seniors and free to kids 12-years-old and under. For more info, call 330-8006.
