    Garrick Ohlsson

      Troy Chromatic Concerts will begin their 118th season this Sunday afternoon with a recital featuring pianist Garrick Ohlsson. The Berkshire Eagle praised his solo performance of works by Chopin at Tanglewood this summer for being “big, extroverted readings, full of narrative force and dazzling contrasts: sotto voce musings versus thundering chords, lyrical versus virtuosic [...]

    Five Finger Death Punch

Taking inspiration for their name from classical martial arts movies, inaugural members Zoltan Bathory and Jeremy Spencer formed the band in 2005. They immediately [...]

    Kip Moore

      This is the first headlining tour for Georgia native Moore, who toiled for several years as a store manager with Abercrombie & Fitch before landing a record deal with MCA Nashville.

    Stefon Harris—Coming Home

      A 1991 graduate of Albany High School, Stefon Harris often credits his exposure to a variety of music from high school teachers and the Empire State Youth Orchestra for giving him the opportunity to seek his own artistic direction.
