Read about Sebago-Long Lake Music festival in the news!
Opening of the Season – 2015 Portland Press Herald, July 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 2014
With near perfect acoustics, Deertrees performance is a ‘tour de force’
If the Tarantelle was a tour de force, the Saint-Saëns Romance, Op. 37 for Flute and Piano, with Rotholz and Manes, was melody personified, exploring the beauties of the flute in the same way that “The Swan” in “The Carnival of the Animals,” utilizes the singing voice of the cello.
Both short works require the utmost in virtuosity, which was in ample supply.
The Forecaster, 2014
- “Returning for its 42nd season, the Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival is ready to start its five-concert series, which runs every Tuesday from July 15 to Aug. 12. Music director Laurie Kennedy is highly regarded for designing programs that are stunning in variety and excitement.”
