Series at Deertrees Theatre

Tuesday Evenings at 7:30 p.m., Deertrees Theatre, Harrison, Maine

The Tuesday night chamber music series is the signature event of the SLLMF season. The Historic Deertrees Theatre at the top of Long Lake in Harrison, Maine, is the informal, picturesque setting for the series, which takes place on the last three Tuesday evenings in July and the first two Tuesdays in August. Originally built for summer theater and opera productions in the 1930s, the restored 300-seat theater offers superb acoustics and proximity to the stage, which enables a close rapport between musicians and audiences.
