PORTLAND PRESS-HERALD – The Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival will perform three concerts with audiences as part of its 49th season.

Because of ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, the Board of Trustees and the music director have modified the festival this year to include both live concerts with audiences and online streaming concerts, performed by a core group of nine musicians, mostly from the northeastern United States. The entirety of the festival concerts last summer were streamed.

The concerts before an audience will be held at 7:30 p.m. July 13, 20 and 27 at Deertrees Theatre in Harrison.

Participating artists in this year’s festival are Min-Young Kim and Keiko Tokunaga, violin; Laurie Kennedy and Matthew Sinno, viola; Mihai Marica and Bonnie Thron, cello; Jered Egan, double bass; and Yuri Funahashi and Mihae Lee, piano.
