Proceeds will directly support The Philadelphia Orchestra residency at SPAC

Come join us at the Canfield Casino for a farm-to-table dinner conceived and prepared by guest chef Dominic Labelle, Quebec’s “Culinary Revelation of the Year.”

The French Provençal theme and menu is a tribute to The Philadelphia Orchestra Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, who was born in Quebec and is also the Music Director of the Orchestre Métropolitain of Montreal. “He is a superstar here in Canada,” says Chef Labelle, “and I am thrilled to be creating a dinner in his honor.” Labelle, who worked in many of Montreal’s fine dining restaurants, now runs his own farm and farm-table restaurant outside the city, will be bringing his vegetable-forward ethos to Saratoga, presenting the freshest foods of summer in new and inventive ways.

For one of the best meals you’ll have all summer, come join us at the Casino for this very special evening and dine alongside members of The Philadelphia Orchestra!

Reservations are available for $250 per person. Purchase tickets here.
