Every summer, the Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College hosts a free concert series on the roof of the museum, appropriately titled "UpBeat on the Roof." The 2015 lineup was recently announced and includes a mix of musical styles from chamber music to Latin jazz, folk, rock, and blues.

On June 1, Opera Saratoga (formerly Lake George Opera) will kick off it's month-long summer festival.

A favorite summer tradition of many Saratogians is the Freihofer's Jazz Festival. Today, the New York State Senate adopted a resolution commemorating the 35th Anniversary of the Jazz Festival and proclaimed June to be "Jazz Month."

The Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) will be making some changes to give guests a better experience at their events.

Famed singer-songwriter Don McLean will perform this June at the SaratogaArtsFest in the Arthur Zankel Music Center at Skidmore College.

Early details are out for the Inaugural Parrothead Festival happening at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds this June. Escape to the Islands, and enjoy an authentic Jimmy Buffet experience!

Saratoga Parrothead FestivalGood things come in threes... better things come in fours. This is the 4th festival that comes to Saratoga from the masterminds at Saratoga Festivals, LLC.

First there was Saratoga Brewfest and Oktobeerfest, then we saw the Inaugural Saratoga Beer Week (another huge success), and now along comes the 1st Annual Parrothead Festival to possibly steal the show.

For the first time in a quarter of a century, New York City Ballet dancers will perform in conjunction with the Philadelphia Orchestra at Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs this August for a spectacular night of performance of the highest caliber.

Forget the winter blues, I'm talking about the summertime blues! SPAC has just announced the 2012 Freihofer's Jazz Fest lineup and it's got me dreaming of warm weather and smooth music.
