Albany Municipal Auditorium
Orchestra Instrument Petting Zoo at 6:30 pm.
One of the universal elements of music is melody. Composers and musicians play with sequences of tones, called melodies. When we sing, we sing melodies. When the orchestra plays great melodies, the orchestra sings! Come hear the Albany Symphony’s expanded version of its Carnegie Hall’s Link Up concert, “The Orchestra Sings.” Students are encouraged to invite their parents; parents are encouraged to bring their families. This fun-filled interactive concert includes selections from Copland’s “Old American Folk Songs,” Dvorak’s “New World” Symphony, Stravinsky’s “Firebird Suite,” Brahms’ “Symphony No. 1” and more exciting selections.
