Tim and Sarah Macek are natives of the Washington, DC area and professional violinists, performing regularly and the Kennedy Center, Wolf Trap Park for the Performing Arts and many other DC area musical venues. About 11 years ago, their travels in Maine took them to the Rangeley region, and following what seems to be a common progression, they went from staying for a couple of nights, to renting a small cabin (on Loon Lake), to finally acquiring their own camp on Haley Pond. And, also following time honored custom, they went from the imagined fantasy life of summers spent boating and hiking to the real world of camp maintenance; painting, sawing and hammering, and daily trips to the Builder’s Supply. Still, their enthusiasm has been such that many of their curious friends have visited and enjoyed the area and its hospitality. Again this year they have the decided to combine their love of Rangeley with their love of chamber music (and their musician friends’ desire to have an excuse to visit again…). Thanks to the Rangeley Friends of the Arts, they are happy to present this concert.
