World Class Chamber Music Concerts

The Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival has brought the joys of chamber music to western Maine for over forty years. Every summer, SLLMF presents a much anticipated chamber music series at the Deertrees Theatre in Harrison.  Outreach events include youth concerts, community programs, and series concerts, repeated around the state.  Performers of the highest caliber come from around the country and abroad.

“The Festival offers some of the most provocative programming on the Maine summer scene” (Portland Press Herald, 2011).

“Backstage at the Deertrees Theatre in Harrison opens onto the Maine woods, the theater itself has some of the most remarkable acoustics in New England, and the chamber music one would expect to hear at Lincoln Center.” (Portland Press Herald, 2015)

“The opening concert of the festival’s 43rd season, on Tuesday evening, drew a nearly full house to Deertrees, a charmingly rustic, 300-seat theater with superb acoustics, and the festival’s musicians, drawn principally from orchestras and chamber groups around the country, played with passion and precision.” (Portland Press Herald, July 2015)
