Pittsfield, Massachusetts-based Albany Berkshire Ballet is marking its 50th anniversary in 2019. Associate Artistic Director Mary Giannone Talmi tells WAMC that the half-century celebration will see ambitious new works alongside the staples the company is known for.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production. His free time is spent with his cat Harry, experimental electronic music, and exploring the woods.
