A second major hall for Troy, NY

The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, long recognized as one of the nation's most acoustically perfect halls, has a new neighbor. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute President Shirley Ann Jackson has spearheaded the design and construction of the Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center, here reported in The New York Times. The hall opened last week.

As a native of upstate NY, and having performed at Troy Music Hall, I'm so glad to see this article. Troy Music Hall is an absolute gem of a performance hall and is overlooked often, people have no idea that it's there! (and if they do, they have no idea just how incredibly wonderful it is!). Perhaps another hall will bring more publicity to this area and bring even more great performances. They need it!
