Music on the Lake

Music on the Lake

Have you ever dreamed of spending an afternoon indulging yourself in sublime chamber music, played by outstanding musicians, in the intimacy and beauty of a Lake Barcroft home?

The "MUSIC ON THE LAKE' house concert was founded in 2003 to make such dreams come true. Come and join us for an enchanting Sunday afternoon of fine music and friendly conversation with your neighbors and the performers. Each concert, approximately an hour long, is followed by a reception with light refreshments. Children are welcome, if they are able to sit through the performance without disturbing others.

Since we feel we should compensate our performers for their preparation and willingness to share their talent with us, the audience is asked to send a donation with reservation. (Recommended amount: $20 per person)

If you are interested in hosting a concert, or know outstanding musicians, please contact us.

Upcoming Concert - January 28, 2018

On Sunday, January 28, we will present fabulous young soprano Amy Nicole Broadbent, currently with the United States Navy Band, along with accomplished pianist Elizabeth Brown. I've been trying to have Ms. Broadbent in this series since I was deeply moved by her heavenly voice at a Bach Consort private event a couple of years ago, and am delighted to share the experience with you. The duo will explore centuries of music and poetry, ranging from English baroque to contemporary American, including songs by Henry Purcell, Samuel Barber and living composer Dominick Argento. The concert will be held at the beautiful lakefront living room of Anne and Will O'Neil. Stay for reception to chat with the performers and neighbors. 
 
Reservations are accepted now.
