The Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, with April 26 and 27 concerts of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 representing the largest group of musicians to be assembled on the stage of the center’s Sosnoff Theater. For the concerts, Leon Botstein—president of Bard College and music director and principal conductor of the American Symphony Orchestra—and James Bagwell will lead members of the American Symphony Orchestra, Bard College Conservatory Orchestra, Longy Conservatory Orchestra, Bard Chamber Singers, Bard Festival Chorale, and Capella Festiva, plus vocal soloists. The Fisher Center, on the campus of Bard College, was designed by Frank Gehry and completed in 2003. The American Symphony Orchestra is orchestra-in-residence at the Center, which is also home to Bard College’s theater and dance programs.
