Summer at Skidmore — 2017 Special Events

 



 skidmore-grounds300x168Located at the edge of downtown Saratoga Springs on a beautiful 950-acre campus, one of the country’s outstanding liberal arts colleges, Skidmore College is alive with activity all summer long. Public events fill the calendar from Mid-May to August. Only a short walk up North Broadway from the heart of Saratoga Springs, Skidmore’s campus boasts the Arthur Zankel Music Center, The Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery, the Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater, and the Schick Art Gallery.

World class music, theater, dance, art, and literature thrive during the summer months.  Skidmore is home to the New York State Summer Writers Institute, the Skidmore Jazz Institute, the SITI Theater Workshop, the Decoda ǀ Skidmore Chamber Music Institute, the Dance Workshop, and the John B. Moore Documentary Studies Storytellers Institute.  The events associated with these programs offer the public a chance to partake in the bounty of cultural riches being explored on our campus. The highlights of our season are shown below.  For ticket information, further details, and to view our complete line-up see our Summer Events.
