With the entertainment industry largely on pause because of concerns over the coronavirus, now is a good time to reflect on the best summer shows that we have enjoyed at Saratoga Performing Arts Center.

Last month, we asked readers to list and tell us about their three all-time favorite musicals at Proctors. 

We received a good response, with several readers going into detail on why they enjoyed them so much.

Now we’d like to ask this:

Tell us your three all-time favorite events attended at SPAC.

It can include concerts of all kinds of music, movie nights with the Philadelphia Orchestra as well as dance and New York City Ballet performances.

If you can, maybe provide the approximate year, as well as any details on what made the show so memorable, like a great version of your favorite song or your favorite ballet. Include opening acts, if noteworthy.

We’re just asking for your first name, last initial, and your town.

Something like this:
1) Jazz Festival, 1993 (along with details)
2) NYCB Balanchine program, opening night, 2012
3) John Mayer with opening act One Republic, 2008
