The Barn welcomes the Rejection Project , a new multi-media play made from hundreds of Albany community stories and voices, performed by friends and neighbors in the 518 area. They were asked to share their stories, experiences, thoughts, and opinions on how rejection influenced their lives. ‘How they have been rejected (by people, communities, society)?’ They responded with stories about racism, sexism, protest, heartbreak, love, self-empowerment, discrimination of disabilities, friendship, family, transphobia, homophobia, and claiming your identities.
Join us for the premier of this original multimedia theatre production!
When: Thursday, July 9 – Saturday, July 11. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., show at 8
A group of entrepreneurs, lawyers and business people are bringing a national entrepreneurship program to Albany, New York to help startups improve their business plans.
One Million Cups is a weekly meet-up for early-stage with free coffee and food meant to “caffeinate your entrepreneurial community.”
“This start-up community from when I was 18 to now is night and day,” said Brian Selchick, an entreprenuer and lawyer who’s helping bring the program to Albany. “So many more organizations and infrastructure and people are dedicated to the industry. I wanted to bring them together.”
Albany’s first weekly meet-up will be at The Albany Barn, on Wednesday, June 3 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m, and will meet every Wednesday morning from 8:00 a.m – 9:00 a.m.
Join us 1st Friday, May 1st, from 5-8 p.m. for the opening receptions of “Lost & Found” a group mixed media exhibition, and “Metamorphosis” a solo exhibition by abstract mixed media artist Sarah Holub Schrom. (more…)

Join us on Thursday, April 9th at 3:00 p.m. for an afternoon with Sweet Plantain: a dynamic classical string quartet music influenced by jazz, hip-hop, and latin rhythms.
Artfully fusing the western classical traditions in which they were trained with the hip-hop, jazz improv, and Latin rhythms on which they were raised, their unique repertoire and live shows educate and entertain. Through original compositions and arrangements, and with their use of extended percussive techniques, Sweet Plantain awakens audiences to new possibilities in chamber music. Separately hailing from The Bronx, New Jersey, and Venezuela, together these musicians give voice to a sound that is contemporary, multicultural, and very New York.
The show starts at 3pm and is powered and made possible by the Albany Barn & Troy Music Hall. Admission is free- all ages are welcomed.
