Saratoga Arts Presents
NYC Ballet Musicians & Friends
Since 2000, a small group of the NYC Ballet Orchestra musicians have offered summer chamber concerts at The Arts Center on Thursdays during the Ballet’s residencies at SPAC. The series actually began a few years before that at The Adelphi Hotel, and then moved across the street as The Arts Center emerged from the old Saratoga Springs Library building. These annual concerts have provided the community rare and cherished opportunities to see and hear these extraordinary musicians in an intimate setting, and have become a valued supplement to the full-scale ballet performances of SPAC’s classical season.
Admission for this event is suggested donation of $7 which is payable at the door.
Saratoga Arts' Soiree
At our 2016 Annual Soiree in November, we recognized Dee Sarno with Saraoga Arts’ Community Arts Leadership Award. 2016 was Saratoga Arts’ 30th Anniversary, and it was an especially good year to honor and celebrate our founding Executive Director from 1988-2007. Dee’s impact on the arts in Saratoga is unmatched and, in addition to her visionary leadership of Saratoga Arts, her service has benefited other organizations, including Homemade Theater, The Saratoga NAACP, SPAC, and Saratoga ArtsFest.
The evening also featured the gypsy jazz of Hot Club Saratoga, light fare, a cash bar and a silent auction including amazing vacation packages and unique works of art.
Special thanks to Longfellows Restaurant for generously supporting this event.
The funds that we raised during this event are used to promote and develop community art-making and appreciatation for the arts through our camps, classes, galleries and out-reach programming, year-round. We look forward to seeing you all next year!
