About Deertrees Theatre
Founded in 1936 as an opera house, Deertrees Theatre was built on the site of an old deer run in the forest above the village of Harrison, Maine. Constructed of rose hemlock in the Adirondack style with hand carved fixtures and near perfect acoustics, the theatre has long been home to Broadway-quality entertainment.
Now listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, the non-profit Deertrees Theatre presents an eclectic offering of theatrical productions and comedies, family entertainment, and a variety of musical concerts during the quintessential summer theater season annually from late June through early September. As a most active performing arts venue of the Northeast, Deertrees is home to the Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival on Tuesday evenings in July, The Backstage Art Gallery featuring the works of local artists, and The Salt Lick Café, offering cabaret acts, small bites, beer and wine.
Cape Cod Chamber Music Festival is back on stage, August 3 through 13, 2021. The venerable chamber music festival’s 42nd season features performances by Artistic Directors Jon Manasse and Jon Nakamatsu, the Escher Quartet with Brian Zeger, and Imani Winds. Audiences have their choice of three atmospheric venues: The historic, 300-year-old First Congregational Church in Wellfleet, picturesque Cape Cod National Seashore Visitor’s Center in Eastham, and Cape Cod’s major performing arts hub; the Cotuit Center for the Arts. Year-round residents and summer visitors alike will have the opportunity to enjoy world class performances in nine concerts over two weeks.
The festival kicks off with a concert “In Celebration of Our Audience” performed by Jon Manasse (clarinet) and Jon Nakamatsu (piano). “Our wonderful Festival audience has shown incredible dedication and optimism, despite the difficulties of the past year. We conceived of this first concert as a personal message of gratitude for their support and a celebration of live chamber music returning to the Cape. We are thrilled to offer a season of programs including established masterpieces and exciting discoveries,” says the two artistic directors about the program.
In the interest of public health and safety during the Covid-19 pandemic, concerts will be one hour in length with no intermission, abiding by local guidelines to ensure a safe concert environment. Tickets are available by phone at 508-247-9400 and at capecodchambermusic.org.
