Great Place, Perfect Pace

Sit down for an intimate concert with a musical legend or pop into the area's galleries on First Friday. The Capital Region hosts world-class performers, artists, movers, and shakers to entertain and enrich residents and their families. Consider catching a rock concert at the Times Union Center, watching the New York City Ballet or Philadelphia Orchestra at their summer home in Saratoga Springs or strolling through the galleries dedicated to new and modern art in the converted 19th-century buildings at the nearby MASS MoCA.
