Set in the summer resort community of Lake George, New York and surrounded by the breathtaking Adirondack Mountains and the shoreline of beautiful Lake George itself – the Lake George Music Festival (LGMF) is a collaborative artist retreat for emerging young professionals and celebrated artists, held annually at the end of each summer in late August.

Musicians attend solely as a way to advance intellectually, artistically, and professionally; working closely together in a tight-knit community and nurturing atmosphere performing daily open rehearsals, live public concerts, and outreach events in the picturesque summer resort town of Lake George. The repertoire performed at the festival is selected from requests submitted by participating musicians. Each participant can be assured to have an active and rigorous rehearsal and performance schedule.
