Yes, it snowed this week, but now the summer FREE concert series season is upon us. Really…
The first series out of the gate this summer is the UpBeat on the Roof concert series that returns once again to the roof of Skidmore College’s Tang Museum in Saratoga Springs. 10 shows from June through August – all of them free.
All of the concerts take place at 7pm on Fridays, and will move indoors to the museum in case of inclement weather.
