This concert, "The River Flows Through Us," explores the history of upstate New York through the lens of bodies of water that surround and connect communities. The program features three works commissioned by the Albany Symphony, as well as Dorothy Chang's delightful mini-oratorio for children's chorus and orchestra, The Grand Erie Canal.
