Lake Geo. Music Festival season is here

Now in its third year, the Lake George Music Festival is offering an extensive lineup of concerts featuring world-class musicians and rising young stars in a full week of live concerts, open rehearsals, interactive workshops, and outreach events — all free of charge.

Since its inception in 2011, the fest has drawn volunteer musicians from around the world to perform in various venues in Lake George. In 2012, no less than 70 talented musicians participated, presenting chamber music and full orchestra concerts to over 2,000 spectators.

Since its conception, the Lake George Music Festival has brought together professional musicians as well as music students and alumni from many prestigious institutions including the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, the symphonies of Atlanta, Richmond, New World, Dallas, Boise, Detroit, Lansing, the Pittsburgh Opera, the Ying Quartet, Astral Artists, and nearly every music conservatory in the nation including the Curtis Institute, the Juilliard School, and the Eastman School of Music.

The festival’s presentations have been well received by audiences and have prompted praise from critics as well as from municipal officials for adding substantially to the area’s cultural resources. For the season schedule and other details, see: www.lakegeorgemusicfestival.org.
