RIP: Herb Chesbrough, 1947-2014

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Former president and executive director of the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Herb Chesbrough passed away on Wednesday (September 17) after a long illness.

He began working at SPAC as comptroller in 1970 and held the top position there from 1978 to 2005. He led SPAC for more than a quarter century during which time he instituted many of the shed’s regular features including the annual jazz festival, the chamber music concert series and the Wine & Food Festival. He was also responsible for the growth and diversity of SPAC’s pop and rock concert series, booking as many as 43 special event concerts during the summer of 1983.

Chesbrough was forced out of SPAC in the wake of a 2004 scandal over the decision to cancel the annual summer residency of the New York City Ballet. After leaving SPAC, he later became senior advisor with the Los Angeles-based Arts Consulting Group.
