Over the span of 5 days, the American Music Festival will present more than 35 new and recent works by 33 American composers, including world premieres commissioned by the Albany Symphony and GE Renewable Energy. David Alan Miller,  the conductor and music director of the Albany Symphony, kindly answered our 5 questions about the Festival.  THE FESTIVAL HAS ALREADY STARTED! HOW IS THE AUDIENCE’S RESPONSE SO FAR? WHAT ARE YOU PERSONALLY EXCITED ABOUT?
I’m particularly excited about our Songs of the Earth concert featuring works by 13 young composers from the Yale Composition Program. It’s wonderful to use this festival as an opportunity to discover new voices in the new music world.
OPEN REHEARSALS, 18 WORLD PREMIERES, TALKS, ETC. THE AMERICAN MUSIC FESTIVAL IS A TRULY IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE. IS IT A WAY TO BRING AUDIENCE MEMBERS AND MUSICIANS TOGETHER?
Absolutely! That’s the beauty of how we’ve designed this festival! All the composers and performers are hanging out here in Troy, NY. Every way you turn there is a composer! It’s 4 days of solid interaction between musicians, composers, performers, and the public. Read the rest of the review here
