For more than 20 years now, the legendary Troy Savings Bank Music Hall has been opening its doors for free monthly matinee performances by some of the region’s finest musical talent from a wide range of musical genres.
The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall’s Music @ Noon concert series kicks off the 2009-2010 season with a performance by theater organist Ned Spain, who will perform show tunes and old standards, played on an Allan Digital Theater Organ at 12noon on Tuesday, October 13.
Spain is well known throughout Nippertown as the organist at Proctors in Schenectady, where he performs on Goldy, a 1931 Wurlitzer pipe organ. For a decade, Spain also performed summer concerts on the historic 1840 Ferris pipe organ at the Round Lake Auditorium.
