Step Right Up to the Vaudeville Circus! Arts Fest Fridays Continue

SARATOGA SPRINGS – The Tang Teaching Museum will host the third Arts Fest Friday on November 6, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Arts Fest Fridays are free, entertainment-filled events designed to bring the community together at various local art hotspots. Each Arts Fest Friday is held at a new location with a different theme; the Tang Museum’s theme is “Vaudeville Circus,” which includes tumblers, tricksters, tappers and much more.

Tang’s evening of entertainment includes dancing by Saratoga Jazz Tap and violin performances by Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Mike Campese. To complete the circus theme, the Skidmore Circus Club and the Waldorf School Circus Club will be performing their unique acts live.

The headline act is the traveling one-man-band extravaganza, “The Suitcase Junket.” Matt Lorenz, the sole performer of “The Suitcase Junket” is known for playing instruments not only with his hands, but his feet! He sings, plays guitar and plays up to four instruments using his feet, making him sound like a several member band is playing. Lorenz is also known for his “throat singing,” where he can produce two notes at once with his voice.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to tour the Tang’s “Affinity Atlas” exhibit, as well as Mark Allen’s visual art exhibits.

Food will be provided by Circus Café.

All Arts Fest Fridays are free and open to the public. The Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College is located at 815 N. Broadway in Saratoga Springs.
