The Albany Symphony Orchestra kicked off the 2012-2013 season Saturday with Cirque de la Symphonie.

The show wasn't only for adults though, kids got the chance to come enjoy it as well.

Artists, including aerial flyers, acrobats and jugglers performed to live classical and popular contemporary music.

Officials with the orchestra say it was also a great show to start the fall season as well.

"The show features Halloween music. Pieces like 'Night on Bald Mountain', 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice', the 'Macabre Dance'," says Stage Director Melissa Haley.

The symphony's next event will be Sunday, November 11 at the Albany Museum of Art.
