Description

Saratoga Performing Arts Center presents
the first-ever

Festival of Young Artists

featuring Empire State Youth Orchestra, Northeast Ballet Company, and the Capital District Youth Chorale

Sunday, June 3 from 2 – 5 p.m.

A FREE EVENT* for the community, the festival will celebrate the collaborative creativity of more than 400 of the Capital Region’s brightest young dancers, musicians, singers, poets, and visual artists.

Kicking off at 2:00 p.m. SPAC’s grounds will be transformed into a cornucopia of student pop-up performances, fine art displays, food stands, poetry jams, immersive workshops and activities.

At 4:00 p.m. Hundreds of young artists from all three organizations will gather together to present a one-hour concert on SPAC’s main stage, featuring a large-scale production of celebrated works by great American composers such as Copland, Hansen, Gershwin, and Rodgers.

Featured performances include demonstrations led by the Haudenosaunee Singers and Dancers from the Onondaga Nation, and local Native American author and storyteller, Joseph Bruchac, as the festival’s special guest and master of ceremony.

SPAC’s Inaugural 2018 Festival of Young Artists is part of the venue’s new commitment to fostering artistic collaboration and providing free access to enriching arts programs.

*Registration is required! Attendees can register in advance online through Eventbrite, or on the day of the performance at the Route 50 box office.
