    The Albany Symphony will welcome American pianist, Orion Weiss, who marks his third performance with the orchestra as the centerpiece of their American Music Festival Orchestra Concert on Saturday night at 7:30 PM.

Weiss joins the orchestra for Christopher Rouse's "Seeing," an extraordinary piano concerto commissioned by the New York Philharmonic for Emmanuel Ax in 1999. "Seeing" is a powerful, poignant statement on the nature of mental illness.

One of the most sought-after pianists of his generation, Orion Weiss has performed with most of America's major orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, Boston Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and New York Philharmonic.
