The Lakeview Chamber Players return to the stage this summer with very special music to mark the emergence from the pandemic. Central to the program is Beethoven’s “Holy Song of Praise and Thanksgiving” (Heilige Dankgesang) from his String Quartet op. 132. Also on the program are one of the “Mystery” Sonatas for violin by Heinrich Biber, the “Fuga e Misterio” by Argentine tango master Astor Piazzolla and Haydn’s Symphony #94, known as the “Surprise” Symphony. We hope you will join us for a summer evening of chamber music by the lake.
Tim and Sarah Maček, professional musicians in the Washington, DC area and summer residents of Rangeley, are the founders of The Lakeview Chamber Players. We are now in our seventh year of concerts partnering with the Rangeley Friends of the Arts to bring our love for music to our “home away from home” community. As these concerts have have become established, we are delighted that our musician friends from Washington and New York now consider Rangeley to be part of their summer schedule as well. Like us, they love the beauty of the lakes and mountains, the sunny days and crisp nights, and the warmth of the people. We are thrilled to be back and playing in Rangeley!
