(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Herb Chesbrough, president and executive director of the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) in Saratoga Springs, NY, has informed board members that he plans to leave before his eight-year contract expires in 2006.
Chesbrough initially planned to leave at the end of his contract but has been under fire since SPAC's board voted last February to drop the New York City Ballet after the 2004 season, reports The Saratogian. For now, that decision has been reversed.
A subcommittee meeting to find a replacement for Chesbrough is scheduled to meet next week; a general board meeting is scheduled for October 26. — Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
