Trailblaze NY New Music Festival
The Albany Symphony celebrates the new Empire State Trail with 6 major world premieres plus a rolling, 4-weekend, 6-city new music festival.
Trailblaze NY celebrates the completion of New York’s Empire State Trail – 750 miles of cycling, walking, and hiking trails – with an immersive, multi-weekend new music festival. A significant expansion of the orchestra’s annual American Music Festival, Trailblaze NY embodies the Albany Symphony’s mission to support the creation, presentation, and dissemination of new music by living American composers. Over four weekends in six cities, the Symphony will present free concerts and multimedia art events to thousands of people along New York’s scenic trails and waterways. Like the trail itself, this rolling festival connects communities across the state through place-based works of art, bringing together composers and artists with community members to create collaborative new works and performances.
