The Palace Theatre is one very notable cornerstone in Albany's growing downtown entertainment destinations. A concert & theatrical entertainment facility in the heart of Albany, New York , it first opened its doors in October 1931.

Built during the Depression, the Palace was the largest theatre in a city already noted for a number of other opulent movie houses. Today, the Palace Theatre remains the sole survivor of this period of entertainment and continues to make history with a widely diverse offering of popular acts and cultural events.

Post Malone stirs hip-hop, R&B, and alternative into his own sonic "sauce" that's both intoxicating and invigorating. "I describe what I do as sauce," he affirms. "You can turn up to it. You can chill to it. You can do anything to it. It makes you feel some type of way, or it makes you want to party. It just comes naturally."

On May 21 at the Palace Theatre in Albany, New York we will come together to celebrate Music Without Borders as Empire State Youth Orchestras' (ESYO) CHIME kids take to the stage for their first-ever public concert alongside ESYO's Empire State Wind Orchestra, and signature Empire State Youth Orchestra. Music can transcend the boundaries between communities. With the launch of ESYO's CHIME last year, at no time in its history has ESYO made the benefits of music more readily available to children from all walks of life. CHIME provides free, daily, and intensive music instruction to 40 Capital Region children living in some the region's most economically disadvantaged areas, giving kids access to a transformative music education experience they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. The concert will be a series of ESYO "firsts" as the CHIME Musicians make their first public performance, the Youth Orchestra and Wind Orchestra perform on the same evening for the first time in ESYO history, and the Youth Orchestra performs the world premier of Clint Needham's Free Radicals-a piece specially commissioned for the orchestra's upcoming tour of Portugal this summer. Tickets are $23 for adults and $13 for students and seniors. They can be purchased through the Palace Theatre Box Office or by calling (518) 465-3334. The concert will be preceded by a Celebration of Youth at 5:30 p.m. in the Palace Theatre atrium. This event will include wine and light fare, and the opportunity to support ESYO as it takes its next steps to bring exceptional music education to even more children. Tickets to this event are $75 (includes concert admission). Tickets to the Celebration can be purchased through ESYO or by calling (518) 382-7581. Additional event sponsorship information can be found at esyo.org. With your support, we hope to more than double the number of children in CHIME by 2017 and bring ESYO to new levels of membership and performance. Come and support the future of music!

Bill Burr is an American comedian or a comedian from the North American Union, depending on when you read this. He grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts and did fairly poorly in school, despite the fact that he applied himself. Having first gained notoriety for his recurring role on the second season of Chappelle’s Show, Bill developed a comedic style of uninformed logic that has made him a regular with Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon.

Chris Cornell is a modern icon who transcends genre. He was the chief architect of the 90s grunge movement and remains one of the most iconic rock voices of all time. Achieving multi-platinum success with three legendary bands - selling over 30 million records worldwide - he has forged his own unique identity over three decades as a Grammy award-winning, Golden Globe nominated singer, songwriter, guitarist, composer and lyricist. His career began with Seattle trailblazers Soundgarden, whose wild soundscapes combined visceral punk attitude with artistic depth. Powerfully original, they were the first of their generation of Seattle bands to sign to a major label in 1989 and their work continued to evolve over the course of seven groundbreaking albums. Soundgarden made a historic return to the live stage in 2010 and have since toured the world, releasing the all-new studio album, King Animal, to widespread acclaim.

For more than twenty years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television. First on "Politically Incorrect" and for the last thirteen years on HBO's "Real Time," Maher's combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 34 Emmy nominations. In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher's uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, "Religulous," directed by Larry Charles ("Borat"). The documentary has gone on to become the 8th Highest Grossing Documentary ever. ?? Maher started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1979, and still performs at least fifty dates a year in Las Vegas and in sold out theaters all across the country. Three of his ten stand-up specials for HBO - 2007's "The Decider," 2005's "I'm Swiss," as well as the hilarious, "Bill Maher ... But I'm Not Wrong," - have been nominated for Emmy awards.
