SPAC has teamed up with our partners at The Philadelphia Orchestra and New York City Ballet to bring a student-focused, educational, and entertaining video performance for teachers to stream for their students in lieu of an in-school presentation this year. After students have watched the virtual performance, they will be able to sign up online with a guardian to receive TWO free amphitheater ticket to come to SPAC this summer - one ticket for the participating student and one for an accompanying adult!! After coming to see New York City Ballet on July 16th or The Philadelphia Orchestra on August 6th, they will qualify for a free Student Lawn Pass.
