The Lake Placid Institute for the Arts & Humanities launches the 10th Annual Chamber Music Seminar for Adults during the week of August 11-15, hosting a group of chamber music enthusiasts who come together to play and study the great chamber music literature under the tutelage of a highly accomplished and prize-winning faculty. The faculty concert will be held at 6:00 P.M. on August 13 in the Northwoods Inn Cabin Grill. This one-hour program features the six faculty members performing a mix of chamber music and solos, including works by Mozart, Beethoven, Dvorak, Bartok and Bach. The week culminates with two informal performances given by the students who have come to Lake Placid from all over the country, on Friday, August 15 at the Northwoods Inn Cabin Grill at 2:00 P.M. and 6:00 P.M. The evening performance will last into the evening, and will be a festive setting with a cash bar. There is a suggested donation of $20 toward the Lake Placid Institute for the faculty concert; the student performances are free to the community, though donations to the Institute are always welcome.
