The marvelous Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in Troy is once again hosting its Music@Noon concert series, which kicks off at 12noon today (Tuesday, October 9) with a performance by the eclectic acoustic group, Annie & the Hedonists.
Led by the powerhouse versatile voice of Annie Rosen, the Hedonists are about to release their upcoming album, “Women Be Wise,” and they’ll likely be showcasing several selections from the new album along with a delightful mix of Hedonist favorites culled from their diverse grab-bag of blues, folk, jazz, gospel, country and more.
The hour-long lunchtime Music@Noon concerts take place at 12noon on the second Tuesday of each month, and the series features a wide-range of musical styles from classical to jazz to folk favorites. If you’ve never been to the Music Hall, the concerts are the perfect opportunity to check out the theater and its world-renowned acoustics. Doors to the Music Hall open at 11am, and concert-goers are encouraged to bring along their lunches. Admission is free.
