Moderated by Bob Goepfert, content coordinator for Weekender, the entertainment weekly published by the two newspapers, the panel discussion featured Peter Lesser (executive director of The Egg in Albany), Philip Morris (CEO of Proctors in Schenectady), Dr. Susan Scrimshaw (president of the Sage Colleges in Troy and Albany) and Marcia White (producer and executive director of the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs).

They discussed on how their organizations have been impacted by the current economic downturn and offered their vision on the future of the arts in the Capital Region.

If you weren’t able to attend the discussion in person, this is the video of the event, in two parts.
