Came to hear The Orchestra at SPAC. I like the venue a lot. Comfortable seatings and good acoustics.

An absolutely beautiful venue for summer concerts of any genre. Constructed in the natural amphitheater style, the sound is great from any seat whether you are in a ticketed seat under the roof covering or on the spacious lawn area behind under the sky. Will definitely make the drive to see another concert here.

This is a great music venue in NY. They host every genre of music from rock to classics and tonight listening to the famed band Chicago could not have been better. The sound system rocks and the setting was comfortable inside the theater - they also have lawn seating. Come hungry too - plenty of concession stands in the round... More

We try to go to Saratoga each summer when the Philadephia Orchestra performs at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. The venue is lovely, the music is heavenly. We especially enjoy the pre-theater dinner in the Hall of Springs, which is beautifully prepared in a beautiful space. While the dinner is not part of SPAC, reservations can be made on line... More

We went to SPAC to see Luke Bryan, 8/17/14. He and the opening performers, Lee Brice and Cole Swindell were terrific. The tv screen, the outlay of stage and seating are horrible. Truly only those with seats inside the tiny ampitheater get a good view of the concert. Anyone with lawn seats may be able to watch on small tv... More

After seeing Luke Bryan with Rascal Flatts a few years ago I was extremely excited to here he was coming to SPAC. Being new to the arena I had never been to this area but have been to a dozen other concert around New England. Well this by far was the worst experience ever. To start off you hit traffic... More

The orchestra was wonderful. The program was The American Songbook. The weather was great. All inside seats are good. The lawn has gotten very bare in the middle. The food at the quick concessions should be avoided.

Great array of performers. Perfect venue for good weather. Consider bug spray in your bag. Lawn or seats equally fun.

Had a date night dinner with my wife on the lawn to see The Philadelphia Orchestra. The evening included a special performance by "Cirque De La Symphonie". Awesome!
