A Tempo this Saturday (6/15) previews this year’s festival season at Saratoga Performing Arts Center and explores its expanding year-round education programs.

Known for its Jazz Fest and classical series during the summer, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center has gradually been expanding its year-round educational programs to reach broader audiences and make the arts more accessible to students in the region. A Tempo host Rachel Katz speaks with Elizabeth Sobol, who has been President and CEO of the center since 2016, about these programs and this year’s summer festival season, which includes residencies by the Philadelphia Orchestra and New York City Ballet.
