The Saratoga Performing Arts Center traces its roots back to early 1960’s. The start of the decade saw a proposal that centered on New York Philharmonic pick Stowe as its residential place. Duane La Fleche who was a newspaperman didn’t like the idea and convinced them to stay in New York and use Saratoga Springs as its base. Leaders from all walks of life started to arrive on the same page and designing of the building got underway. Saratoga Spa State Park was selected as the place where the center was to be built.
Funds were then arranged which were contributed by the state of New York, Rockfeller Brothers Fund in 1963 and groundbreaking ceremony was held in the summer of next year. Three hundred workers worked for a staggerring four hundred and ten hours to get the job done. After undergoing construction for one hundred and thirty six thousand hours, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center opened its doors for the public for the first time on 9th July, 1966.
Harry Belafonte became the first non-classical artist to perform at the venue in the year 1967. That kick started a tradition of rock and pop performers giving live concerts at this magnificent arena. Now it plays host to classical music organizations like the Philadelphia Orchestra as well as the New York City Ballet among others. Sensational artists like Sarah Chang, Yo-Yo Ma and Yuja Wang have been regulars here as well.
The Saratoga Performing Arts Center has a seating capacity that goes up to twenty five thousand and one hundred.
