The Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) has offered world-class programming since it first opened in 1966, including performances by the Philadelphia Orchestra, the New York City Ballet, and more. Now in its 50th anniversary season, SPAC will release a one-of-a-kind commemorative coffee table book, SPAC50, on December 8th at the Northshire Bookstore.
SPAC50 is a limited edition, 350-page coffee table book that explores the venue’s storied five-decade history. In 11 themed chapters, the book focuses on SPAC’s music (from classical arts to rock and roll), dance, educational offerings, highlights, and interesting insights into the venue’s development.
In addition, multiple artists and leaders who have shaped SPAC’s history have contributed their personal reflections. Over 450 images, many of them unpublished photos, will accompany the text.
The commemorative book was edited by Saratoga Springs historian Field Horne and designed by Saratoga Living and Chronogram magazine creative director David Perry. Skidmore professors Denise Warner Limoli and Tom Denny, along with other field experts, have provided essays for SPAC50.
If you would like to purchase a copy of SPAC50, then you will want to visit Northshire Bookstore in Saratoga Springs on Thursday, December 8th, for a free public launch party for the book. The book launch will run from 6:00PM-8:00PM, and you will have the chance to purchase a copy for $75.
