Philly loses its summer homemain
Saratoga Performing Arts Center joined the shutdowns today, ending summer residencies for New York City Ballet, the Philadelphia Orchestra and Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.
“So much thought, care, heart and soul go into crafting and preparing for our summer season that we truly think of it as a love letter to our community. To find it necessary to cancel what would have been one of the most ambitious and artistically inspiring seasons to date is just gut-wrenching and inconceivable” said Elizabeth Sobol, SPAC’s President and CEO. “But the indisputable truth is that even with our park setting and our 5200 seats, it would be simply impossible to find a way to keep the artists and the community safe.”
