The group is celebrating its 36th season, an electrifying and eclectic mix of performances that include some of the finest a cappella repertoire as well as concerts with the Canadian Brass, the Albany Symphony, and the Orchestra Pro Musica.
APM gives singers an opportunity to build meaningful artistic expression with colleagues of similar advanced abilities. The Concert Chorus is the core group of singers who performs all subscription concerts in addition to occasional extra events. Rehearsals are September to May. The Masterworks Chorus is an oratorio-sized group which performs major concert works with orchestral accompaniment once or twice a year. Rehearsals are six to eight weeks prior to a performance.
For more information about subscriptions, single tickets, or any of the programs, please contact the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall at 518-273-0038, or online at troymusichall.org or albanypromusica.org.
