SPAC

The Record (Troy, NY) - - LO­CAL­NEWS -

Dis­ney • Pixar’sUp in Con­cert and Char­lie Chap­lin’s City Lights in Con­cert.

The sea­son will, once again, show­case two weeks un­der the ba­ton of Yan­nick Nézet- Séguin, both mu­sic di­rec­tor of The Philadel­phia Orches­tra and mu­sic di­rec­tor of The Metropoli­tan Opera. Nézet- Séguin will con­duct the clos­ing night per­for­mance of Mozart’s Re­quiem.

The orches­tra’s 2019 sea­son will also fea­ture a lineup of ac­claimed and emerg­ing artists ap­pear­ing at SPAC for the first time. Per­form­ing with The Philadel­phia Orches­tra for the first time is Jazz at Lin­coln Cen­ter Orches­tra and clas­si­cal pi­anist Chris­tian Black­shaw.

Mak­ing their SPAC de­buts in 2019 are young, vir­tu­osic pi­anists Jan­ice Carissa and Jan Lisiecki, Pe­ru­vian con­duc­tor Miguel HarthBe­doya, and the dancers of PHILADANCO in The Philadel­phia Orches­tra’s open­ing night per­for­mance.

“This sum­mer we will present a record num­ber of works that have never be­fore been per­formed on SPAC’s stage rang­ing from clas­si­cal master­pieces like Mozart’s Re­quiem — to new works such as liv­ing com­poser Ma­son Bates’ An­thol­ogy of Fan­tas­tic Zo­ol­ogy,” Sobol said in the re­lease.

The Cham­ber Mu­sic So­ci­ety of Lin­coln Cen­ter will also re­turn from Aug. 4 through 20 with a ros­ter of in­ter­na­tion­ally cel­e­brated artists, tak­ing au­di­ences at the Spa Lit­tle The­atre on a mu­si­cal jour­ney with 23 works — none of which have ever been per­formed by CMS at SPAC.

In ad­di­tion to per­for­mances by David Finckel and Wu Han, Co-Artis­tic Di­rec­tors of CMS, in res­i­dency for all three week­ends, au­di­ences can look for­ward to the re­turn of the Escher Quar­tet, plus de­but ap­pear­ances by four artists in­clud­ing Chi­nese vi­o­lin­ist An­gelo Xi­ang Yu, Bri­tish flutist Adam Walker, Bul­gar­ian vi­o­lin­ist Bella Hris­tova and renowned Amer­i­can cel­list Keith Robin­son.

Co- artis­tic di­rec­tors of the Cham­ber Mu­sic So­ci­ety of Lin­coln Cen­ter, Wu Han and David Finckel, said in the re­lease, “We are grat­i­fied to con­tinue ful­fill­ing SPAC’s com­mit­ment to the world’s finest cham­ber mu­sic reper­toire and per­for­mances. These pro­grams, de­signed specif­i­cally for this res­i­dency, com­prise a cham­ber mu­sic lis­ten­ing ex­pe­ri­ence of in­com­pa­ra­ble depth and di­ver­sity.

“We look for­ward to re­unit­ing with our de­voted SPAC au­di­ence and Saratoga Springs com­mu­nity.”

Tick­ets to these newly an­nounced per­for­mances will be avail­able on­line at www.spac.org start­ing at 10 a.m. on Mon­day, Jan. 14 to SPAC mem­bers and 10 a.m. on Thurs­day, Jan. 29 at to the gen­eral pub­lic.
