"This year has been fabulously successful, with warm, appreciative audiences," said Catherine Beeson, Artistic Director of Loon Lake Live! "We have enjoyed presenting innovative programming that is accessible to the entire community, delivered in a welcoming and educational environment."
Loon Lake Live! presents many of the classic and much-beloved composers of the past, but also regularly features compositions by living and lesser know composers. According to Beeson, the group is particularly proud of their "Family Fun" series, held on Saturday mornings at the Saranac Lake Free Library and devoted to "sharing classical music to stimulate and nurture the next generation."
Private contributions provide much of the support for the free concerts, with many relatively small donations. This year the group is also receiving funding from Stewart's Shops and the New York State Council for the Arts.
