ALBANY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

The Albany Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1930 by John F. Carabella, who was born in Rome in 1885, and was a favourite pupil of Pietro Mascagni, composer of Cavalleria rusticana. He came to America in 1915 to become organist and choirmaster at St. Bernard’s Church in Cohoes. The orchestra has evolved artistically under the innovative leadership of music directors Carabella, Rudolf Thomas, Ole Windingstad, Edgar Curtis, Julius Hegyi, Geoffrey Simon, and David Alan Miller. The last of these, former associate conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, was appointed music director and conductor in June 1992 and has established himself as one of the nation’s foremost conductors. The Albany Symphony Orchestra fulfills its mission by performing, commissioning, and recording the work of established and emerging American composers while respecting and bringing new vision to time-honoured classical music. The last few years have been a time of dramatic growth and success for the orchestra. In 2011, the Albany Symphony was invited to participate in the inaugural season of Spring for Music, a festival celebrating innovative programming by American orchestras at Carnegie Hall. In 2013, the Albany Symphony was the only orchestra to appear for a second year in the festival. In 2014, the orchestra’s recording of John Corigliano’s Conjurer won a GRAMMY® Award. The Albany Symphony has received more ASCAP Awards for Adventurous Programming than any other orchestra in America, 26 to date, including the John S. Edwards Award for Strongest Commitment to New American Music in 2013 and 2014.
