To the Editor: 

Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival just completed its 50th season with five concerts at Deertrees Theatre in Harrison and six community concerts in the Lakes Region of western Maine. Each event was celebratory. In addition, our artists performed repeat concerts on the coast of Maine, in Connecticut, and in two locations in New Hampshire, including the Majestic Theatre in Conway.

We so appreciate the groundswell of support and interest from throughout the community. We especially want to thank Deertrees Theatre, our home for the past 30 years, for their support and professionalism in everything from stage management and lighting to ticketing. Additionally, we want to thank those who provided venues and audiences for the free community concerts. Expenses were covered with sponsorships, including a last-minute, generous donation from the Davis Family Foundation. Over 100 enthusiastic audience members attended performances at the Magic Lantern’s Web Tavern, McLaughlin Garden & Homestead, The Ballroom of Harrison, Bridgton Historical Society’s Temperance Barn at Narramissic Farm, and the Waterford and Bridgton Congregational Churches.

Kudos to Nicholas Orgo of Stella’s on the Square, who hosted five Tuesday evening, post-concert receptions for as many as 35 people, fondly called “Feeding our Hungry Musicians”.  And a huge thank you to our audiences at Deertrees.  Most are on our mailing lists so will receive thanks and updates throughout the year. Finally, our musicians. Music Director Mihae Lee produced another season of incredibly beautiful music, performed by our outstanding musicians from throughout the United States.  We exist to bring world-class, live chamber music concerts, particularly to the people of western Maine. The fantastic work of our music director and musicians allows us to do that.
