The Palace Theatre, City of Albany and Mirth Films present

The Palace Theatre, the City of Albany and Mirth Films are teaming up to present The Palace Sessions, a monthly live music series featuring some of our favorite regional acts performing in unique spaces within the historic performing arts center. The series kicks off on Wednesday, July 15 with a live performance by Wurliday. Hailing from Albany, NY, Wurliday brings together some of the most exciting, dynamic musicians in the live music scene for a lively injection of soul-funk goodness, direct to your ears.

Mark your calendars for these special live streaming concerts on July 15, August 19, September 16 & October 21. Performances will stream live on the Palace Theatre’s YouTube Page at https://bit.ly/PalaceAlbanyYoutube beginning at 7:00 pm. Additional performers will be announced.

“We are thrilled to be able to welcome live music back to the hallowed halls of the Palace Theatre,” noted Billy Piskutz, Executive Director of the Palace Performing Arts Center. “This historic building exists to entertain and create memories and after a nearly four-month absence due to COVID-19, it is a thrill to know that it will again. We hope that our patrons will enjoy these performances as much as we do!”

“Summer in Albany is synonymous with music and entertainment and it is wonderful to have the Palace Theater hosting local musicians albeit in a different way this year,” said Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan. “I applaud the ingenuity of the Palace Theater, the Office of Cultural Affairs, and Mirth Films in bringing entertainment to people during COVID-19. I continue to be impressed with how our community has risen to the challenge of keeping the arts alive during this time and look forward to tuning in to the Palace Sessions.”
