The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, named a National Historic Landmark in 1989, is in use over 100 days a year. Since it opened its doors in 1875, the Hall has hosted performances by numerous world-renowned artists. We welcome you to experience a live performance in this majestic, awe-inspiring setting.
As the twentieth century progressed, Troy's industrial dominance declined. As Troy's wealth faded, so did its ability to support the arts on the scale to which it had become accustomed. The advent of radio, cinema and television provided alternative forms of entertainment for the city's growing middle class. Troy's community leaders began looking into ways to save the Hall. Ideas, most of which involved buying the building from the bank with either private or public funds, included establishing a Museum of Industrial and Folk Art downstairs and renting the Hall itself to the area's many colleges.
