Local Albany Area Grammy Winners

The Albany Symphony Orchestra picked up a Grammy Award last night!  It’s the first such nomination and win in the orchestra’s 84-year history.

The ASO was awarded best classical instrumental solo for its recording of composerJohn Corigliano’s “Conjurer — Concerto For Percussionist & String Orchestra,” which was recorded right here in the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, and was conducted by David Alan Miller, a Delmar resident and music director for the ASO since 1992.

Congrats to David and the entire gang at ASO!

And, a teacher from Westfield, NY won the first ever Music Educator Grammy Award, beating out 30,000 other music educators to win the honor!  Kent Knappenberger, who was educated at SUNY Fredonia, has lead the music program in Westfield for 25 years.

Way to go Kent!
