A highlight of The Sembrich schedule each summer are the season previews featuring selections from upcoming productions by Opera Saratoga and the Seagle Music Colony.
On Wednesday, June 15th at 7:30 pm, the Young Artists of Opera Saratoga present a sampling from the company’s 2016 repertoire, including excerpts from Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, Il Postino by Daniel Catán and The Witches of Venice by Philip Glass. General admission tickets are $25. Members of The Sembrich are invited to attend this season-opening program free-of-charge.
The Seagle Music Colony singers return to The Sembrich for their annual season preview on Wednesday, June 29th at 1:30 pm. The sold-out program features selections from The Most Happy Fella, The Elixir of Love, Roscoe and The Music Man.
“Though tickets are no longer available for this [June 29th] event, we encourage concert-goers interested in attending to give us a call a day or two before the performance in the event of any cancellations,” says Michelle San Antonio, Administrative Assistant.
The Seagle Music Colony, now entering its 101st year, is believed to be the oldest summer vocal training program in the United States. Opera Saratoga, founded in 1962 as Lake George Opera, is believed to be home of the second oldest young artist program in the country. Led by program director Laurie Rogers, the young artist program consists of three tiers for singers, as well as opportunities for pianists, conductors and directors.
The Marcella Sembrich Memorial Association, founded in 1940, honors international opera singer Marcella Sembrich at her former teaching studio and woodland retreat on Lake George, located at 4800 Lakeshore Drive, Bolton Landing.
