“WATER MUSIC NY” coming to Little Falls this Summer.

The Albany Symphony will celebrate the 2017 Erie Canal Bicentennial with Water Music NY, a one-of-a-kind orchestra barge journey from Albany to Lockport (Buffalo). Musicians will travel the Erie Canal for seven days (July 2-8), partnering with canal communities to perform newly commissioned works by gifted composers, along with celebratory Americana music for the Fourth of July. With Maestro David Alan Miller, the Symphony is one of our region’s most revered music and cultural organizations, and has received numerous national awards for adventurous concert and educational programming. Stopping in Little Falls on Wednesday, July 5, this collaborative event with the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts and the City of Little Falls will celebrate our waterfront community with a Street Festival and open air, free waterfront concert.

Little Falls will transform its Canal Place area into an afternoon Street Festival from 2-6pm, celebrating history, New York State foods and products, local performers, music, and cultural heritage. The City will host families, neighbors, concert goers, tourists, boaters, cyclists, and hikers.

The centerpiece of the 8pm evening concert in Rotary Park will be the newly commissioned piece written specifically to reflect the local heritage and the importance of the Canal to Little Falls. The piece will be created by composer-in-residence, Benjamin Wallace, doctoral candidate at Yale University. The Mohawk Valley Choral Society and guests will accompany the Albany Symphony Orchestra at the Little Falls Harbor for this unique concert.

Why Little Falls? Little Falls was selected by the Albany Symphony, focusing on smaller Canal communities with big hearts.
