Summer 2013 brought the 150th anniversary of The Saratoga Race Course (Saratoga, NY). To celebrate, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center commissioned Richard Danielpour to write a new concert-opener. SERENADE premiered on August 8 performed by The Philadelphia Orchestra, led by Keith Lockhart.Danielpour’s long-time association with Saratoga’s Yaddo artist community made him a perfect choice for the commission.
