SPAC has announced that its second annual speaker series will return on the amphitheater stage to explore water and its role as the defining essence of Saratoga Springs, its inspiration on music and art, and its primal place in nature and the environment.

The series begins with composer Kenneth Frazelle (June 11), who will examine water through the lens of music and art with his talk entitled In the Flow: Music and Water, and continue with Sandra Postel (August 1), director of the Global Water Policy Project and author of Replenish: The Virtuous Cycle of Water and Prosperity. The series will culminate with New York Times bestselling author Charles Fishman (September 12), one of the most provocative and inspiring voices on water issues in the last few years and the author of The Big Thirst.

Sandra Postel is the author of Replenish: The Virtuous Cycle of Water and Prosperity and a world expert on fresh water issues. Founder of the Global Water Policy Project, she has dedicated herself to building a more water-secure world for people and nature. Hailed for her “inspiring, innovative and practical approach,” Sandra has appeared on BBC’s Planet Earth, Leonardo DiCaprio’s The 11th Hour, and the National Geographic Channel’s Breakthrough series.

A unifying essence, WATER is necessary to the survival of every living organism…has the capacity to be a universal bridge that connects our planet… and is the heartbeat of Saratoga Springs. Don’t miss this fascinating Speakers at SPAC series which will explore the inspiration that water has had on music, as well as its impact on the environment and the world around us.
