SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — Another renowned performing group is taking up summer residency at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in upstate New York.
The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center announced Monday it will become Saratoga's resident chamber music ensemble. It joins the Philadelphia Orchestra and the New York City Ballet in making SPAC its summer home.
The society will program and perform the traditional three-week, six-concert Saratoga Chamber Music Festival. The festival has been at SPAC since 1991. It was directed by Canadian violinist Chantal Julliet until 2010, and run by pianist Andre-Michel Schub since then.
The 2014 chamber festival will be under the direction of Chamber Music Society artistic directors David Finckel and Wu Han.
