“SPAC50” Commemorative Book To Launch at Northshire Bookstore Dec. 8

SARATOGA SPRINGS - The Saratoga Performing Arts Center has chronologized its five-decade history in a limited edition, 350-page commemorative coffee table book. SPAC50 brings alive unforgettable memories and little known insights into the founding and development of the celebrated arts venue. “SPAC50” explores the venue’s music, dance, and educational offerings through 11 themed chapters, including contributed essays by field experts such as Denise Warner Limoli, associate professor of dance at Skidmore College, and Tom Denny, professor emeritus of music history at Skidmore College. Accompanying the text are over 450 images, many of which have never been published, as well as reflections from the artists and leaders who shaped SPAC’s past. A robust timeline of season highlights traces five decades of artistic excellence in all genres, ranging from the classical arts to rock and roll. SPAC50 will be available on Thursday, Dec. 8 at Northshire Bookstore, 424 Broadway, in a free, open-to-the-public launch party from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The book may be purchased for $75. Refreshments will be served and guests are invited to share their favorite SPAC memories. Prior to Dec. books can also be purchased online at spac.org.
