The Albany Symphony's Music Education Programs And Vanguard Tournament Fundraiser

Vanguard logo

Since 1963, Vanguard has been a fundraising and support group for the Albany Symphony Orchestra. Vanguard’s members usher at concerts, provide homes for visiting artists, help the ASO staff with office work and children’s programs, prepare food for musicians, and much more.

On Monday, August 27 Vanguard will host the Vanguard Tournament Fundraiser at Pinehaven Country Club in Guilderland, New York. This fundraiser will help the Albany Symphony Orchestra provide music education programs for schools, children and families throughout the Capital Region.

ASO Board of Directors Chair Jerry Golub, Golf Tournament Chair Ramon Rodriguez, and ASO Director of Education and Community Engagement Sophie Moss join us now to tell us about the fundraiser and the ASO’s music education programs.
