SCHROON LAKE - A Seagle Music Colony alumna has been nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording.
Ava Pine, who studied at the Schroon Lake music camp in 2005 and 2006, has been nominated for her work on Houston Ars Lyrica's CD release of Hasse's Marc' Antonio E Cleopatra.
"I wouldn't be where I am today without my exceptional experience at Seagle Music Colony," Pine said.
The Seagle Music Colony celebrated its 95th anniversary in 2010.
In 2011 the colony will again offer a full schedule of productions at its Schroon Lake campus.
"Old Friends and New," the traditional opening concert, will feature songs and arias from all 32 students June 18.
The Oscar Seagle Memorial Theatre will host Brigadoon June 29-July 2; Cosi Fan Tutte by W.A. Mozart July 13-16; The Tales of Hoffmann by Jaques Offenbach July 27-30, and The Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert & Sullivan Aug. 10-13.
The Schroon Lake Boathouse will host Seagle Colony productions of Billy Goats Gruff, a children's opera, July 9, and Lullaby of Broadway July 21-22.
Seagle performers will also present Vespers Concerts July 24 and Aug. 7 and 14. The concerts of sacred choral music and vocal solos have been a Schroon Lake tradition for most of the colony's 96-year history. All Vespers concerts are open to the public and seating is first-come, first-serve.
