HARRISON — The Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival’s 46th season continues at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7, at the Deertrees Theatre, 156 Deertrees Road. Widely known as the summer’s highlight for many residents and visitors, the festival’s concerts have garnered a reputation for presenting five extraordinary concerts performed by 26 internationally acclaimed artists in a woodland setting with powerful acoustics. The festival runs for two more Tuesday evenings through Aug. 14.

Works featuring the clarinet begin and end the Aug. 7 program. The concert opens with Leonard Bernstein’s seductive, jazzy Sonata for Clarinet and Piano, as the festival celebrates this American composer and conductor’s 100th birthday this month, and closes with Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet, one of Mozart’s most beloved compositions. In between, Rachmaninoff’s Trio elegiaque No.1 in G Minor features soulful melodies and keyboard brilliance, while the wind instruments cavort in Poulenc’s sparkling Trio for Oboe, Bassoon and Piano.

Pianist and Music Director Mihae Lee will be joined by oboist Stephen Taylor, clarinetist Alan Kay, bassoonist Adrian Morejon, violinists Timothy Lees and Philip Palermo, violist Catharine Lees, cellist Elizabeth Anderson and pianist Yuri Funahashi.
