Officials did not reveal who the ensuing three acts will be.
“Saratoga Springs is blessed with a wide array of live interactive entertainment, making our community truly unique in a world where so many are limiting their attention to their screens. We are proud to support the Stewart’s Signature Series at Skidmore which will bring exceptional performers to our community while reinforcing Skidmore as a cultural resource for everyone,” said Susan Law Dake, Skidmore Class of 1971, president of the Stewart’s Foundation.
Bill Dake, chairman of the board at Stewart’s Shops, said Stewart’s and the Dake family “are proud to support Skidmore’s contribution to Saratoga’s arts community. Saratoga’s eclectic mix of live events from horse racing and polo, theater and opera, to dance and music of all kinds makes our city unique, and Stewart’s Signature Series will be a major part of the summer experience in Saratoga Springs this year.
“We strongly encourage Saratogians, and residents of the greater Capital Region, to seize the opportunity to attend these unique arts performances at Skidmore.”
