HARRISON — Internationally renowned violinist and violist Todd Phillips makes his first appearance in the final concert of the 46th season of the Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 14, at the Deertrees Theatre.

Patriotism inspired the three composers whose works appear on the Aug. 14 program. As the festival continues to remember the 100th anniversary of the death of Debussy, the Sonata for Cello and Piano, like all of his late works written during WWI, pays homage to a French musical tradition of elegance, clarity and restraint. Kodaly had a passion to preserve his Hungarian folk heritage; his Serenade for Two Violins and Viola is an ingratiating blend of folk inspiration and modern harmonies. In the melodically sumptuous Piano Quintet No. 2 in A Major, Dvorak joyfully blends his Slavonic musical heritage with European classical traditions. 

Pianist and Music Director Mihae Lee will be joined by a group of renowned artists, violinists Catherine Cho and Tien-Hsin Cindy Wu, violist Todd Phillips and cellist Ronald Thomas.

Individual tickets are $25. Free for anyone 21 and younger. All tickets are for open seating. Tickets will be held at the front entrance box office and are available on concert nights starting at 6:45 p.m. Reserved tickets must be picked up by 7:20. Purchase tickets online at http://sllmf.org/tickets/ or call 207-781-3202.
