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.
