Program of August 15th - Charles Peltz, Maestro of the Glens Falls Symphony gave his vision of the role this group has in our community.  The symphony is doing well with the number of musicians and donations to support the Symphony.  Charles reminded us how Glens Falls has changed over the last 20 years with the vision of select leaders of the area.  The strong foundation that has been created has helped the symphony and other arts to grow in the community.
