About this project

Founded in 2011, the Lake George Music Festival is the village's first and only annual classical music festival. Each August, we hold a series of open rehearsals and evening concerts, featuring both chamber music and full orchestra. The 2012 season concerts will be held at St. James Church, Caldwell Presbyterian Church, Sacred Heart Catholic Church, and Shepard Park. All events are FREE.

LGMF brings together performing professionals, college professors, orchestra members, and talented conservatory or university music students. Our musician roster is pretty impressive, with participants from all over the country and the world. Visit lakegeorgemusicfestival.com for a full list of the 2012 Festival Artists.

As a performance based festival, the Lake George Music Festival is an ideal setting for musicians in all stages of their artistic growth to rehearse and perform together on a daily basis. Those who participate in this festival work closely together, collaborating to make beautiful music for the residents and visitors of Lake George and its surrounding communities.

In order to off-set costs of travel, room & board for our world-class musicians, and to tune pianos and purchase music, we need the help of the community. Your support is vital to the growth of the festival, and we hope you'll join us to "kickstart" our 2012 fundraising campaign!

The campaign will culminate on the night this Kickstarter project ends, Friday May 25th, with a celebration and Benefit Gala held at the Fort William Henry Resort. Visit our website for more information about the Gala. We hope to reach our first milestone of $1,000 before that night with your help! Please spread the message to friends and family. Together, we can continue to bring beautiful, high quality classical music to Lake George Village!
