Through brilliant live performances, innovative educational programming, and engaging cultural events, the Albany Symphony celebrates our living musical heritage and enriches a broad and diverse regional community. As one of the eminent leaders of new American music, the Albany Symphony is establishing an enduring artistic legacy that is reshaping the nation’s musical future.

The last few years have been a time of dramatic growth and success for the orchestra. The Albany Symphony’s new music mission has earned it 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.

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 at the festival. In 2014, the orchestra’s recording of John Corigliano’s Conjurer with Dame Evelyn Glennie won the orchestra its first GRAMMY® Award and its 2015 release of Chris Rouse’s Kabir Padavalli with soprano Talise Trevigne garnered a GRAMMY® nomination.

In 2017, the orchestra embarked on its nationally acclaimed Water Music NY tour across New York State’s Erie Canal in celebration of the landmark waterway’s bicentennial. The one-of-a-kind tour drew more than 25,000 residents across New York State to the innovative concert series.

The orchestra’s adventurous programming earned an invitation to perform a series of concerts and residencies in April 2018 at the Kennedy Center as a participant in the SHIFT Festival. The Albany Symphony performs over 25 concerts per season throughout New York’s Capital Region and beyond. As the only fully professional symphony orchestra based in New York’s Capital Region, the Albany Symphony enriches a broad and diverse regional community, engaging over 150,000 people each year across an extended geographical area.
