SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Performing Arts Center announces "SPAC @ Home: Concert Series," featuring performances by violinist Joshua Bell alongside pianist Peter Dugan – on Sept. 12, and genre crossing ensemble Time for Three, Sept. 19. 

Shot on the grounds of SPAC and at Skidmore College's Arthur Zankel Music Center, each presentation will feature an exclusive program and will include greetings and commentary by the artists as well as interviews about the challenges and creative opportunities in the time of COVID-19. 

 The "SPAC @ Home: Concert Series" is the latest addition to Spac Reimagined, following the recent Beethoven 2020 Festival that featured exclusive concerts, lectures and a new online platform throughout the month of August. 

"When we first began to dream about artists we could bring to our grounds to create a unique concert experience without our amphitheater stage, Joshua Bell and Time For Three immediately came to mind. I have been privileged to work with all of them in my pre-SPAC lives at IMG and Universal.  Both Joshua and Time For Three possess fresh, creative approaches to music-making -- and both have close and special connections to SPAC," says Elizabeth Sobol, President and CEO of Saratoga Performing Arts Center." 

 On Saturday, Sept. 12, violinist Joshua Bell and pianist Peter Dugan will be featured in a recital filmed at Arthur Zankel Music Center at Skidmore College followed by a Q&A with Sobol, and Dayton Director of The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College Ian Berry. 

Tickets for this premiere event are $10 and can be purchased at spac.org. Ticket buyers will be directed to the exclusive stream, available to view Sept. 12-19. 

On Saturday, Sept. 19, SPAC and Caffè Lena present Time For Three in a concert that was filmed throughout the SPAC grounds in August. This trio of classically trained musicians – Nicolas “Nick” Kendall (violin, vocals); Charles Yang (violin, vocals) and Ranaan Meyer (double bass, vocals) – got together for the first time post-quarantine to create a program that intersects Americana, modern pop and classical music, bringing their uncommon mix of virtuosity and showmanship to performances of their signature arrangements of classical works, originals and covers. This concert is presented in lieu of Time For Three’s scheduled return to SPAC this season, following the trio’s sold-out appearance at SPAC for the inaugural season of “SPAC on Stage” in 2017.   

The concert will be available to stream for free on Sept. 19 - at 8 p.m. on Caffè Lena’s YouTube and accessible through spac.org and SPAC's Facebook page until Oct. 19.
